Christina Campodonico

Christina Campodonico is a reporter, researcher & editor with Here/Say Media. She fell in love with local journalism covering beach cities in her native SoCal and managing a 49-year-old newspaper (yes, newspaper! 🗞️) with a nautical-sounding name and roots in Greek mythology. She brings that passion for building up local communities and breaking down local news in a relatable way to the hills of San Francisco, which she now calls home. Her work has been nominated for multiple Southern California Journalism Awards and has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeleno and KCET's Southland Sessions. Christina initially caught the writing bug at Princeton University. She chased it to the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where she earned her master’s as an Annenberg Fellow, co-founded an award-winning, all-digital arts & culture newsmagazine and has taught as an adjunct instructor. She believes in the power of local journalism and community-powered creativity to change the world.
