Kara Frame

Video Producer

Kara Frame is a video producer for NPR and pursues personal projects in her free time. She most often produces for NPR's explainer series, "Let's Talk: Big Stories, Told Simply." She's crafted stories about housing segregation in Baltimore, MD; motherhood in a refugee camp in Lesbos, Greece; and food deserts in Washington, DC. Frame enjoys a break from the news when filming the Tiny Desk Concerts.

Frame's personal projects have focused primarily on veterans and PTSD. In 2016, her short documentary I Will Go Back Tonight was awarded first place for long-form multimedia at the NPPA Northern Short Course.

Before starting at NPR in 2016, Frame received a B.A. in African-American Studies from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, and a M.A in New Media Photojournalism from the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University in Washington, DC. When she's not working on videos, you can find her in her garden or hosting a dinner for friends.
