Patrick Oppmann CNN

Oppmann is a CNN’s correspondent based in Havana. He is responsible for covering Cuba and the surrounding region for all of the network’s platforms. In addition, he regularly shoots and edits his stories.

Recently, he reported from the Bahamas on Hurricane Dorian, spending several days on Grand Bahama before, during and after the Category 5 storm caused catastrophic damage to the islands. Having previously covered Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and Irma, he was instrumental in CNN’s coverage of the strongest hurricane ever to make landfall in the Bahamas. He also covered the shooting of Red Sox legend David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic spending many days reporting from Santo Domingo on the police investigation that followed as well as the Trump administration’s travel ban on US cruise ships traveling to Cuba.

On December 17, 2014, Oppmann was the only reporter for a U.S. television network to report live from Cuba when the historic announcement was made that the U.S. government would change its policy towards Cuba and seek to reestablish full diplomatic ties with the island’s communist government. He was also the first reporter to interview and film Cuban doctors preparing to fight the Ebola epidemic in West Africa in 2014.


In 2010, he spent weeks reporting from the remote site where desperate efforts were underway to rescue 33 trapped Chilean miners. During that assignment, he regularly broke news about the rescue operation’s progress and was among the first reporters to speak with several of the miners after they were successfully pulled from the mine. He also contributed to CNN’s Peabody Award-winning coverage of the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill, and spent weeks traveling from Louisiana to Florida to report on oil’s impact on people living in the region.

Oppmann joined CNN in 2000 as an assignment editor and then field producer with the network’s Miami Bureau. While in Miami, he covered a wide range of stories including the loss of the Columbia Space Shuttle, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks. He moved to the network’s Seattle bureau in 2009, where he covered a number of stories for all CNN platforms. His reporting has been featured in The Christian Science Monitor, The St. Petersburg Times, The Buenos Aires Herald, TIME Magazine and on National Public Radio.
