Gabriel Pietrorazio is a correspondent who reports on tribal natural resources for KJZZ. He began covering Haudenosaunee communities throughout New York and Canada while attending Hobart College in the Finger Lakes. 

After earning bachelor’s degrees in media and society and political science in 2020, Pietrorazio graduated the following year with a master’s degree from Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park.
