At Columbia's local NPR affiliate, KBIA 99.3 FM, I helped implement a new beat over rural business and healthcare in mid-Missouri. Dubbed the Health and Wealth Desk, I assisted a full-time producer in obtaining demographic data, audience research, social media outreach, implementation and reporting. Here is a link to the first story I covered for the beat along with a screenshot. The story involved the possible closings of 176 rural post offices in Missouri and the ones that hit closest to home for listeners. I was responsible for reporting, editing, writing text script, shooting photos and creating an information graphic for the website.
