Portfolio: WUFT News

I spent Fall 2017 as a web reporter for WUFT News, North Central Florida's NPR/PBS affiliate newsroom. I teamed up with radio and TV reporters to produce cross-platform stories, pitched ideas to newsroom producers and reported on, wrote and photographed day-turn and long form news stories.

While I was at WUFT, each reporter was randomly assigned a Gainesville/North Central Florida zip code to investigate. This led me to a local martial arts studio that's cultivating a unique community. 

This episode of WUFT's The Point podcast features sound bytes from my interviews and behind-the-scenes details of my reporting process.
