Claire Woodcock

Arts and Culture Reporter

Claire got her start with her hometown station, North Country Public Radio, where she worked for nearly two years on both the digital and broadcast ends of the shop. She earned her B.A. in English from SUNY Fredonia in 2015, with concentrations in Journalism, Audio/Radio Production and Gender Studies.

After graduating, Claire worked as a congressional correspondent with Talk Radio News Service in Washington D.C., covering the 2016 presidential primary campaigns. Then she took off on a backpacking trip spanning eight European countries with her recorder before relocating to Colorado. 

Claire has since produced stories for KGNU Community Radio, copy edited and freelanced for Boulder Weekly and has reported on music from the Front Range with BolderBeat. Both in backdrop and artistry, working for Aspen Public Radio has brought Claire back to her roots. 

When not at the station, Claire can be found at a show or exhibition, at the yoga studio or enjoying nature.
