Julianne's career in public radio began during her first work study job at Fordham University’s WFUV.
In those pre-digital days, she recorded Soundprint, Marketplace, and other landmark programs for later broadcast on reel-to-reel, and soon wanted to make radio just like them. She got plenty of opportunities to wield the razor blade and grease pencil as a reporter, producer and host at WFUV and WSCL in Salisbury, MD. She eventually moved on to many generations of digital recorders at WAMU in Washington, DC, and used them to cover everything from politics on Capitol Hill to blind oarsmen on the Anacostia River. Her reports have been carried on National Public Radio and other networks.
Since returning to New York in 2000, Julianne has focused on helping others make radio. For eight years, she proudly led a newsroom of aspiring broadcast journalists at WFUV while co–hosting the music/information program City Folk Morning. In her current role as Senior Editor at WNYC, Julianne works closely with reporters, producers and hosts to bring distinctive news coverage to the station's broadcast and digital platforms. She also teaches radio skills at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and is a trainer for Public Radio News Directors, Inc.
