Traci has most availability on when she's not working with NextGenRadio.
Traci Tong wears many hats and is currently serving as Managing Editor of NPR’s NextGenRadio Project and working with emerging journalists. As a mentor, Traci's focus is to shape and sharpen your stories, get you to step out of your comfort zone, offer critique of your stories, whether they be 4-5 minute feature length reports or 60 minute podcasts or documentaries. She is also passionate about helping creators find joy in the process of storytelling and production.
Traci Tong (she/her) 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 NPR's NextGenRadio multimedia training program for emerging 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.
