Carolyn Adolph is the economics reporter at KUOW. She is interested in the forces that affect the fortunes of Seattle-area employers and how those employers are transforming life as we know it.
With this assignment Carolyn's career comes full circle. She began with the Reuters wire, filing business stories to international markets. She graduated to business reporting for major daily newspapers in Toronto and Montreal. She held health and higher education reporting jobs before switching to radio. Her first assigned radio reporting day was September 11, 2001, when the assignment and life changed irretrievably. At the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation she covered Ottawa's major industry: government. She remembers fun work covering English-French issues and needing to own a floor-length gown.
Carolyn joined KUOW in 2008 and built the station's source bank, the Public Insight Network.
