Sylvia Cunningham is the deputy editor and a correspondent at KCRW Berlin. She's one of the hosts of the weekly current affairs show, "Studio Berlin," contributes to weekday newscasts, and is the host of the monthly storytelling show, "The Bear on KCRW Berlin." She first joined the team in October 2017 as a grantee from the Fulbright Young Professional Journalist Program.
Before moving to Berlin, Sylvia worked in New York for "NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt." She also contributed to NBCNews.com, covering topics such as the impact of Muhammad Ali’s death on the Louisville community, Michelle Obama’s final commencement speech as First Lady, and blood donation regulations in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Florida.
We checked back in with 34-year-old high school teacher Adrianne Oldham, whom we first spoke to at the end of March when schools were closed and she was navigating how to support her students, both academically and emotionally, online.
