Field Correspondent

Kirsten Dorman is a field correspondent at KJZZ. Dorman started with KJZZ as an intern in 2022.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dorman fell in love with audio storytelling as a freshman at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2019.

Throughout her time there, she worked as a reporter for the State Press, Arizona State University's independent student-run news publication. She occupied several positions at ASU's student radio station, Blaze Radio, including a year as its production director.

Working with other students inspired Dorman to continue telling stories through sound after graduating with her bachelor's degree in 2022. As una periodista bilingue and a proud boricua, Dorman is thrilled to serve the Valley by bringing stories that ask tough questions and examine a variety of interesting topics.

When she's away from her desk, Dorman is an avid fiction reader. She enjoys cooking, pop punk music and making Pinterest boards.
