Local News Coverage

A selection of audio-based stories broadcast on the KPFA 94.1 radio station, and written work published in the Martha's Vineyard Times. With KPFA, I produced stories on socio-political developments taking place in metro NYC and the Bay Area. I collected sound bites from the web and the field, conducted research and interviews if necessary, and narrated my stories alongside Pacifica Evening News hosts. With the Martha's Vineyard Times, I sit in on town hall meetings and interview community members to flesh out stories concerning the year-round population.
