During my time freelancing I was a freelance news writer and producer at WBUR, after interning with newscast in Spring 2018. I wrote, fact-checked and edited scripts to be read on air during the news hour. I also recorded, conducted and edited interviews. Here are a few scripts and segments that I wrote while freelancing and as an intern, which were aired live on WBUR.
I wrote this cut script about the United Legal Defense Fund expanding to include both Cambridge and Somerville. I also conducted the interview and edited the cut.
I wrote this cut script about MBTA officials preparing for the evening commuter after a March snowstorm. I also did the research regarding power outages and delays at Logan Airport. It was read on air on March 4th, 2019.
For this article for WBUR’s CommonHealth blog, I conducted, transcribed and edited the interview for publication:
