Catherine Loper

Syracuse Press Club

If you’ve heard me during one of our on-air fundraisers, you’ve probably heard a version of my story before. I wasn’t really that familiar with public radio and NPR until I took a job at the local public radio station during grad school.

I fell in love. As a journalism major and news junky, NPR was my new favorite thing.
