About KUOW Newsroom:
KUOW reporters and producers bring you more than 20 hours of news and information programming every week. You'll also hear stories from KUOW reporters on national programs, including "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered" and "Marketplace."
A typical day for a KUOW reporter includes reading articles and checking wire services before attending a morning editorial meeting. Reporters then spend the day conducting interviews and writing their stories. In addition to daily stories, KUOW reporters work on feature stories, which can take several days or weeks to complete.
KUOW producers spend their day looking for show ideas, conducting background research and booking guests. Sources for shows include articles, pitches from media representatives and plenty of research conducted by phone and email. With live programs like "Weekday" and "The Conversation," producers can work right up until air time booking a guest or confirming facts.
KUOW's local programming has won numerous local and national awards.
