Hi, I’m Amy.
I’m a public radio journalist and audio producer based in the Bay Area.
I currently report for The New York Times and produce for Reveal. I’m also finishing up my Masters degree at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism with an emphasis in data and audio reporting. I’ve reported for KQED Public Radio, Alaska Public Media, KALW, and Oakland North. And I’ve produced weekly News and Public Affairs shows for KALX 90.7FM. Read/listen to some of my work here. Or learn more about my professional interests on the POC in Audio directory.
In 2016, I launched Timber Lake Camp‘s first radio broadcasting program using low power AM frequency radio in Shandaken, NY. I tell you about my experience managing the station and teaching audio techniques here.
When I’m not listening to something, you may find me writing (very) short fiction, riding my bike, or tearing up over a poem by Safia Elhillo.
@amysmostafa is me.
