Christabel Nsiah-Buadi


I'm an award-winning broadcaster and cultural observer. In addition to hosting Home, from Home, I am the US correspondent for Britain's 'Colourful Radio' and a producer on KCRW. I've hosted shows for BBC TV and Radio, and behind the scenes, I've been a Senior Supervising Producer for several award-winning public radio shows, including 'News and Notes', 'Weekend All Things Considered' and 'Tell Me More with Michel Martin.

In my spare time, I can be found playing R'nB hits from the 60-90's (don't hate), discovering new musical discoveries, and harassing my cats, Diggers and Moko.

My audio series Home, From Home has been described as 'pathbreaking new media for a vast potential audience that is all too often treated with shortcuts and generalities', Home, from Home celebrates African Diaspora pop culture through interviews with artists and cultural pioneers. Past guests include Roy Ayers, Melvin Van Peebles, Afro fusion singer and designer Wunmi and Jazz singer Somi. For more information, visit
