One of those hats that gives me great pleasure is serving as a Managing Editor of NPR’s NextGenRadio Project and working with beginning journalists. Yet, whether I’m mentoring the next generation or seasoned journalists, my focus is to:
  • Shape and sharpen your stories
  • Get you to step out of your comfort zone
  • Critique your stories -- whether they are
    • Newscast spots
    • 4-5 minute feature length reports; or
    • 60 minute podcasts or documentaries

About Traci

Traci has more than 35 years as a working journalist. Currently she’s an editor with the Public Media Journalism Association, PMJA, working with newsrooms across the country overwhelmed by the deluge of news during the pandemic and staff cutbacks. She also serves as a managing editor with the NextGenRadio multimedia training program for beginning journalists. Traci is one of the founding producers of the BBC World Service, PRI and WGBH's The World international news program. Over the years, she’s worked from Honolulu to Dallas to Boston… from London to Nairobi… from Sierra Leone to the Philippines… and reported throughout Oceania. She has sat for interviews with deposed dictators, future US presidents, the real Jane Roe and the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Still, a Hawaiian girl at heart, she relaxes by paddling her outrigger canoe or paddling with her Boston Dragon Boat team.
