Christina Campodonico is a reporter, researcher & editor with The San Francisco Standard. She fell in love with local journalism covering beach cities in her native SoCal and managing a 49-year-old newspaper (yes, newspaper! 🗞️) with a nautical-sounding name and roots in Greek mythology. She brings that passion for building up local communities and breaking down local news in a relatable way to the hills of San Francisco, which she now calls home. Her work has been nominated for multiple Southern California Journalism Awards and has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeleno and KCET's Southland Sessions.
