"Claire Caulfield is an editor’s dream.
She is smart. Ambitious. Creative. She’s a team player. She’s got a great eye for news and isn’t afraid of asking tough questions. She also has an incredible sense of empathy that she brings to her work, an important trait as newsrooms increasingly work to better engage with communities that have been underserved by media in the past."

She is very hard-working, communicates well with a pleasing personality, shows great initiative, and juggles multiple assignments well under deadline pressure."

"She is high-energy but not at all high-stress. She always delivered, usually ahead of deadline, and was completely unflappable when under the gun.
She gets news - her sense of story and ability to work a room belie her age - and she sees the big picture in a way that not all young reporters can."
- Steve Crane
Washington D.C. Bureau Director, Cronkite News
