I worked with a team of correspondents and producers to create two special reports for CBS Radio News in New York City. "The Summer of 2016" was created for Independence Day and "America Works" was published on Labor Day 2016. They went out to roughly 500 CBS affiliates throughout the United States and Canada.
I booked guests for the shows, researched and gathered sound in the field. You can hear my voice in the "Summer" piece within the first few minutes and then again at about 30:20.
"America Works" won a 2016 Sigma Delta Chi Award in the category of network syndicated radio documentary. Placement was decided by the Society of Professional Journalists.
I was a general assignment and investigative reporter for KBIA 91.3 FM, the NPR member station in Columbia, Missouri. I pitched story ideas, conducted interviews and analyzed data.
My favorite story was an investigation into the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases in Boone County. I found that the rates of chlamydia infection doubled from 2000-2014 and were higher than the national average.
