Corey Flintoff Moscow Bureau Chief for NPR


Corey Flintoff is the recently retired international correspondent for National Public Radio and former bureau chief in Moscow. A newscaster on NPR's All Things Considered, Flintoff was a reporter at NPR for more than 25 years, covering pirates in Somalia, the earthquake in Haiti, and Egypt during the Arab Spring, among other topics. During his four-year stay in Russia, Flintoff was able to report in an environment where the national government heavily influences and controls the media. In 2016, the former correspondent gave a first-hand look at a resurgent Russia, Vladimir Putin, and America’s biggest challenge, as part of the My Life As Speaker Series hosted by Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. Flintoff discussed a number of timely topics, including the Trump presidency, the Russian media and whistleblower Edward Snowden. He also addressed the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s email server.
