I want to introduce you to some new bylines at KTOO.
Claire Stremple joined us last month as a health and science reporter. Claire worked at our sister station in Haines before moving to the big Capital City. She has a special interest in stories about maternal health and environmental science. We also scored a new dog in the newsroom when Claire moved to town!
Bridget Dowd is starting her third week at KTOO as a local news reporter. We lured Bridget away from KJZZ, the NPR station in Arizona, where she was producing Morning Edition and filing impactful stories from communities around the state. Bridget's natural curiosity will help her get to know Juneau and its stories real quick. She has three cats, which are unfortunately not allowed in the newsroom.
Lyndsey Brollini is also new to the newsroom this month. She's Haida and originally from Anchorage but has been living and working in Juneau for a few years. She splits her days between KTOO and Sealaska Heritage Institute and wants to cover social justice issues in addition to other important stories from our community.
If you've got story ideas for our new or old reporters, send us a tip or reply to this email directly.
