Hafsa Quraishi

WBUR Newsroom Fellow

Hafsa Quraishi is WBUR’s inaugural Newsroom Fellow. Throughout her one-year long fellowship, she will rotate between news departments specializing in live broadcast, newscast, digital producing, and reporting.

A Florida native, Hafsa joined WBUR directly after receiving her masters degree in journalism from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in NYC. She specializes in creating multimedia stories across platforms, combining data and interactive elements to tell a thoughtful story. Hafsa enjoys uplifting community stories around issues related to mental health, business and identity.

Hafsa's dedication to public media deepened as she worked at NPR, as well as member stations WUSF in Tampa and KMUW in Wichita.

She is completing the fellowship completely remotely due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But she hopes to one day be a tourist (or resident) in the city she’s covered for the whole of 2021.
