Susannah Frame is the Chief Investigative Reporter at KING 5 (NBC affiliate) in Seattle. She’s won many of the country’s top journalism awards including two George Foster Peabody Awards, two National Edward R. Murrow Awards, and the Alfred I. du-Pont Columbia Award, considered the equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.
Susannah’s investigations have exposed many wrongs, including the mismanagement of nuclear waste, the callous disregard of worker’s rights and health issues, the waste of millions of tax dollars, and the violation of civil rights of people with disabilities.
Since 2014, Susannah has uncovered numerous illegal practices and injustices at the Hanford Nuclear Site in Washington state. Many of her investigative reports have brought to light a decades-long campaign by the US Dept. of Energy to mislead the Hanford workforce on the dangers of exposure to toxic chemical vapors. Her reports also exposed unfair tactics used to deny sick Hanford workers their worker compensation claims.
