Gisele Regatao is the Senior Editor for Culture for WNYC News, where she reports, edits and curates features, news and criticism across the creative arts and the sweeping intellectual terrain that make New York one of the most fascinating places in the universe.
Before that, she was Executive Producer in the News department for four years, overseeing a team of producers and hosts, and the local content for Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
Gisele came to WNYC as senior producer of the daily music talk show Soundcheck. During her four-year tenure there, the program experienced an unusual spike in the number of Brazilian guests. Originally from São Paulo, Brazil, Gisele has produced radio and reported stories for newspapers, magazines and websites in New York, São Paulo, Los Angeles, Mumbai, Mexico City, and also some smaller cities.
She has taught radio production at Brooklyn College, and second grade at a public elementary school in Osasco, Brazil. She was mostly proud (and only slightly concerned about her work-life balance) when her then 8 year old son asked for a radio for his next birthday.
