Lesley McClurg

KQED Science Reporter

Lesley McClurg reports for KQED Science. She focuses on health and medicine with a sprinkling of stories about the environment and food. Her work is regularly rebroadcast on NPR and PBS. She is an Edward R. Murrow and Emmy award winning journalist. She was awarded best beat coverage by the Association for Health Journalists. The Society of Environmental Journalists recognized her beat coverage of California's historic drought. Before joining KQED in 2016, she reported for Capital Public Radio, Colorado Public Radio, KUOW and KCTS in Seattle. If Lesley isn't immersed in a dance workshop, she's usually darting to the mountains or the beach on weekends with her family. She fuels herself almost exclusively on chocolate chips when on deadline.
