About Liz Jones:
Liz landed at KUOW after running out of gas (and money, and patience) at the end of a year–long road trip from coast to coast and border to border. Along the way, she tuned in to NPR on satellite radio almost constantly. All of that listening fanned the flames of a long–smoldering interest in public radio. She joined the KUOW news staff in the Summer of 2006.
Previously, Liz worked as a project manager, editor and writer for Oxygen Media in New York. (No, she never met Oprah, but did sit in her office once.)
Liz loves a good story and loves to travel, and she's drawn to both for many of the same reasons: the chance to meet new people, the challenge of making sense out of something unfamiliar and finding creative ways to communicate with someone who may not speak the same language.
Liz has reported on alternative energy, immigration and Seattle's Latino community. Her work has been heard on NPR and other national programs, including "The World," "Latino USA" and "Weekend America."
In her spare time she enjoys running, snowboarding and watching every filmed version of "Pride and Prejudice" over and over and over again.
