About Christina

Emmy award winning reporter Christina Estes has spent fifteen years writing about real life drama for Phoenix TV and radio stations. 


Covering crime, politics and special investigations has given Christina plenty of ideas for her current project- a mystery novel.


When Christina's not reading (Twilight Zone fans think Henry Beemis) she maintains a love-hate relationship with running.

Radio Reporting

You can hear Christina reporting for KJZZ, the NPR member station in Phoenix, on 91.5 FM and www.kjzz.org. She's also on Twitter at @reporterestes.

TV Reporting

Depending on the year, Christina can't hold a job, gets bored or is in demand. That's her explanation for working at three radio and four TV stations during her time in Phoenix.


It's led to a variety of stories from the serious (witnessing a lethal injection) to the somewhat silly (a fish going to the dentist). Her favorite stories are the ones that make people go, "Hmm."
