Lisa Hagen

Lisa Hagen is a public radio reporter at WABE in Atlanta, GA and co-host of the NPR investigative podcast: No Compromise. The limited-run series explores fractures within the world of American gun rights activism that have steadily pulled gun culture to the far right. The podcast emerged from Lisa’s work for the Guns & America public radio reporting collaborative. She’s covered criminal and social justice in Georgia since 2015. Before that, she worked as a stringer for the New York Post.

Lisa earned her master’s degree from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Originally from Kahalu’u, Hawaii, Lisa does not know how to surf. She can, however, filet a salmon very quickly and is a lover of fly-fishing.
