WAMU

I worked at WAMU, D.C.'s NPR affiliate, from May 2014 to December 2014. Over that time, I worked with several different facets of WAMU. I reportered and produced stories for Metro Connection, D.C.'s weekly newsmagazine, and Coastal Connection, a weekly program that focused on life on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

I also worked closely with Kavitha Cardoza on her documentary Breaking Ground: Military Children. I was able to do research, conduct interviews, and produce content for the website.

Below, you can find examples of my work at WAMU. If you have any questions or would like to inquire about references, please email me at jalderman117@gmail.com
