Associate Editor, 4/15 - 4/16
I am an associate producer for The Takeaway, WNYC's national news program. As part of the core team, I pitch stories, book guests, prep interviews, write web copy, cut two-ways, and create fully mixed pieces. I cover all sorts of stories, but particularly love things that are: West Coast-centric, geeky pop culture, or about cool ladies. Ideally, all three. I work the morning shift, producing the live show at 9am. I am also trained to do the technical director position.
I was a freelance reporter/producer, primarily for radio outlets. I spent most of my time as a per diem associate producer for WNYC's national news show The Takeaway. There I have produced stories on everything from homelessness in America to Pokemon Go. In June, I reported a feature story for the WNYC newsroom about the city's IDNYC program.
I wrote 5-6 stories a week for a community newspaper that covers the diverse northwest Bronx, in addition to editing several weekly features, news briefs, and obituaries. I covered everything from ongoing school stories to zoning issues to environmental concerns. Some of my investigative pieces have become the most-viewed stories on the website. As Associate Editor, I also managed the interns. I was promoted from Education Reporter in February 2016 and received 1st place in education coverage from the New York Press Association.
Reporter/Producer, 2/13 - 2/15
I reported and produced feature-length stories for KALW’s daily news show Crosscurrents. I covered all sorts of stories, from a night on a San Jose city bus that many homeless use as a shelter to a fun explainer about the Golden Gate Bridge. Most stories took several weeks, but I turned some around in a day like this one. I also represented KALW on the national level, in NPR newscast spots, Marketplace features, and I have been interviewed live on the Takeaway. I started as a volunteer reporter in September 2012.
On-call Reporter, 9/13 - 2/15
I filled in as a General Assignment reporter about two weeks out of the month. I reported between 2-3 stories a day for the daily newscasts, mostly in the form of spots, cut & scripts, and blog posts. I also filed debriefs from the field, both live or recorded. Some big stories include the Ferguson protests, BART strikes, and the Google Bus controversy. I began as an intern in June 2013.
