Radio Feature: ‘Green Bean Casserole’

Although I was a regular producer for WKSU, my own voice very rarely actually appeared on the radio. Lucky for me, during the holidays I had more opportunity to get a piece of my own on the air. When the Inventor’s Hall of Fame in Akron, OH (in our coverage area) announced it would be inducting the inventor of the recipe for green bean casserole in November of 2003, I jumped at the chance to record a holiday feature.

I conducted the interviews, recorded the on-scene and studio audio and produced the entire piece in Cool Edit Pro.

This final product aired on Thanksgiving Day, 2003:

Daily news podcasts

I spear-headed the start of the Journal Sentinel‘s daily news podcast in 2006. It started with me or another member of the online staff writing, voicing and producing the podcast in Sound Edit Pro each night, but eventually I trained several copy editors to join in a daily rotation for podcasting.

Here are a couple of podcasts I voiced and produced myself during that time. Once I get the stupid Flash player to actually work on this site, I’ll have a pretty audio player to play them here.

Here’s one from February 6, 2007 and one from March 1, 2007.

Audio slideshow: Emerald Ash Borer

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel launched a project focusing on the efforts to fight the invasive Emerald Ash Borer in December of 2006. At that time, I had created a microsite for this project and also constructed the following  slideshow for the Dec. 15, 2006 edition. The microsite is no longer accessible.

MJS photographer Tom Lynn took the photos and gathered the audio. I edited the audio and put together this audio slideshow in Soundslides.
