Clare Roth

News Editor

Clare Roth is WFPL’s news editor. She oversees coverage of health, education, the environment and Southern Indiana. She comes to Louisville by way of four-letter, flyover states. After graduating from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, Roth returned to her native state and started her career as a producer for Iowa Public Radio — booking interviews with everyone from pig farmers to presidential candidates. In Columbus, Ohio, Roth hosted All Things Considered at NPR member station WOSU. There, she anchored the daily drive-time program, election nights, breaking news and the occasional talk show. The state’s Associated Press Media Editors Association named her their broadcast rising star and best radio host in back-to-back years. When she’s not at the office, Roth could be spotted searching libraries for her next favorite read, practicing her skating at the ice rink or trying out local bakeries.
