Bioscience & Medicine Reporter

Bonnie Petrie covers bioscience and medicine for Texas Public Radio and is the host of the Petrie Dish podcast, which explores science, medicine, and life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bonnie grew up on the Canadian border in northern New York, but has happily called Texas home for nearly 20 years. She is a 2017 Texas Radio Hall of Fame nominee in recognition of her work in Houston and Dallas before moving to San Antonio, and has received several Edward R Murrow, Associated Press, and other journalism awards throughout her career.

Most recently, Bonnie worked in Los Angeles and reported for public radio stations KPCC and KCRW. She is mom to a high schooler, two dogs, two cats and spends her free time solving family mysteries through genetic genealogy.
