I was incredibly lucky to have spent a few years working at WKSU-FM, an excellent Northeast Ohio NPR station, for my graduate school fellowship. Each year WKU did a large-scale news series based around a topic in the news. During that time period, I got the chance to work with some of the best reporters I’ve ever met to help produce these story packages.
The following two projects were products of teamwork, I claim no individual glory. My duties on these pieces ranged from audio editing (we used Cool Edit Pro), in-studio recording, piece selection and transcriptions. I may not be the reporter in the pieces, but I’m very proud of the work I did there.
I encourage you to listen to the pieces or at least check out the transcripts – there’s some amazing stuff here:
