Graham Smith

Graham Smith is a producer, reporter and editor whose curiosity has taken listeners around the U.S. and into conflict zones from the Mid-East to Asia and Africa.

Smith came to DC from WBUR Boston, NH Public Radio and the Christian Science Monitor. He's worked at NPR since 2003, producing for and running All Things Considered, editing Morning Edition and jumping in on various field assignments and special projects. He is now a senior producer on the Investigations Unit, helping independent journalists and NPR staffers to produce sound-rich, long-form pieces and podcasts.

Smith was a 2019 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for his work on NPR's White Lies podcast. In previous years, he accepted the Robert F. Kennedy and the Edward R. Murrow awards for investigations with Youth Radio. He earned a Murrow for battlefield reporting from Afghanistan, and another for producing in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis. Smith also received the George Foster Peabody award for editing a series on teen sex trafficking in Oakland.
