Kari Plog

South Sound reporter

Kari Plog transitioned from print journalism to public radio in 2018. She has only ever lived and worked in Pierce County, starting at The News Tribune in Tacoma where she covered government and communities across Pierce County.

In her time at KNKX, she's won several radio awards for investigations and enterprise.

Her previous work included an award-winning investigation into a deadly boat launch in Tacoma. Before joining KNKX in November 2018, Kari worked for her alma mater, Pacific Lutheran University, where she served as senior editor of the institution’s magazine, producing long-form storytelling from Parkland to Norway.

Kari also worked for several years as a college newspaper adviser at the University of Puget Sound, and continues to serve as a passionate advocate for aspiring journalists and student media. She’s a lover of orca whales, wine and Prince. She lives in Tacoma with her husband, their daughter, Ruby, and their lovable 75-pound lapdog, Bernie.
