Gracie Awards Submission For Reporter/Correspondent: Carson Frame

Carson Frame’s enterprise reporting on military and veterans issues highlights how women are reshaping the culture of service and holding a traditionally male leadership structure more accountable.

Her stories rely on the interpretations and expertise of women, showing the social, emotional and physical impact of military service on families. The stories in this entry show the autonomy and strength of military-affiliated women, both as leaders, family members and partners to service members. 


She is the only public radio reporter in Texas dedicated to the military beat and the only woman doing this kind of in-depth reporting in South Texas. Carson’s stories had a wide reach, airing on Texas Public Radio, the statewide newsmagazine show “Texas Standard,” and NPR member stations across the country through the American Homefront Project.


Whether she is tackling living conditions on military bases, domestic violence, fertility benefits for injured troops, or relationship counseling for veterans and their spouses – these stories are produced by women, for women, and about women.

In this 15 minute audio mix produced for the Gracie Awards, you will hear a selection of stories by Texas Public Radio reporter Carson Frame covering issues that touch on sensitive, health-related developments within San Antonio’s military community.
