On this episode, we’re joined by Raegan Miller. Raegan is a reporter for KRBD, a radio station in Ketchikan, Alaska. She covers Alaska Native and rural issues as part of the Report for America program.

Raegan talked about making the transition from print to radio and covering stories in very small towns where she often gets recognized. She discussed about the kinds of stories she covered and how she works through everything from getting sound to writing. And she explained what went into a 20-minute interview with a group that included the governor of Alaska.

Raegan also talked about the help she’s gotten from the Report for America program and gave tips to those who might end up participating in it.
