a correspondent reports news from a particular country, while the reporter collects and reports from home or wherever:)
Let īs see what the native speakers have to say...

Thank you Sophia .. You īve been so helpful. What really confused me were the meanings of the two words in Longman dictionary :
 
correpondent : someone who is employed by a newspaper or a television station etc to report news from a particular area or on a particular subject =  journalist
 
while ..
reporter : someone whose job is to write about news events for a newspaper, or to tell people about them on television or on the radio
