Host, The California Report
A Golden State native, Saul has been the Los Angeles co-host of The California Reportsince 2019, covering such issues as homelessness and housing policy, the state's response to climate change and the ravages of the Covid pandemic. Whenever possible, tries to be outside of the studio, connecting these big issues to the daily lives of Californians experiencing them in very personal ways. Before joining KQED, Saul worked for the PBS NewsHour, Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, and public radio affiliate KCRW in Santa Monica, where he also hosted the podcast series "There Goes the Neighborhood" about gentrification. For his work, Saul has been honored with several Emmys and is a two-time winner of the L.A. Press Club's Radio Journalist of the Year Award. When not working, Saul spends his time trying to hone his amateur photography skills and spending as much time as possible in bookstores and coffee houses.
