WORK EXPERIENCE

  • Reporter at WABE 90.1, Atlanta’s NPR affiliate June 2014-Now
    I report and produce original stories for WABE. First, I develop the idea. Then, I do research, interview sources and collect natural sound. Eventually, I compile all of that into an audio story, which I mix myself. I also photograph and design my own stories online.
  • Producer at WAMU 88.5, Washington D.C.’s NPR affiliate Sept. 2012-May 2014
    At WAMU, I helped produce The Kojo Nnamdi Show, a daily local public affairs show. That meant I researched segment ideas, booked guests and wrote host copy and questions. A few times a week, I also put together short two-ways about local politics for the WAMU newsroom.
  • Intern at NPR Headquarters Jan. 2012-June 2012
    My internship was in the Ombudsman Office. I gathered information and fact-checked for the office. I also directed its social media accounts. While I was at NPR, I also managed “Intern Edition,” a radio project that interns created together at the end of the semester.
