I’ve told you before that I love my job. I know not everyone does, and I know how lucky I am.
My job in public media has taken me from the steps of the state capitol and into the farm fields of central Pennsylvania. I’ve appeared at events dressed as WordGirl and on live television with Curious George. And now I can add radio producer to my resume.
Thank you all for your comments on my previous post! Without further adieu, I give you my radio debut.
Go to WPSU’s Local Food Journey to listen and see photos from my afternoon at Way Fruit Farm.
P.S. Nick has a cameo!

Emily, this is so cool! I just listened to the segment — how fabulous. Congratulations!
How exciting! Congrats!
I just commented on the WPSU’s blog post by accident, thinking I was still back here – oops! Loved your radio debut! So exciting!
I actually appreciate that you posted on WPSU — comments that are visible to my colleagues are always a good thing!
Thank you, all! I hope to contribute a radio story once a month — most likely on food, of course. Any topics you’d like to hear covered?
Eeeek! That was so neat! I’ve been saving this post until I finally just now had a quiet moment to listen. Loved hearing your voice, you sound like you belong on the radio! Looking forward to hearing more in the future. I’d be interested in a piece about local/regional specialties in your part of PA, i.e. things that could be found in your neck of the woods that might not be too well-known elsewhere. Congrats!!
Thank you for your kind words, Amy! And also for the topic ideas. I’d like to do a piece on apples this fall — there’s a really fantastic festival nearby. As for other regional specialties, perhaps cheesesteaks, pretzels, or whoopie pies?
I had a huge grin on my face the entire time I listened to this … how exciting!!! I’m not going to share it with my dad because his big dream for me was to be on NPR, and it would be additional proof that, sorry Dad, that isn’t happening! Keep it up, Emily… live that family dream for me! hee hee.
My dad has always wanted to hear me on radio, too. And, hey, up until two weeks ago I didn’t believe it would happen. I do love my job! Thanks for the support, Maggie.
