Paige Cowett, Associate Producer, News/The Brian Lehrer Show
Paige Cowett is a producer in the newsroom and with the Brian Lehrer Show.
At WNYC, we’re experimenting with new ways to tell stories about health. In August 2013, as part of this effort, we produced an hour-long pilot show that we called "The Antidote: DNA Secrets." Click play to stream the complete pilot, above.
Two of our pilot's stories were also broadcast on This American Life and On the Media. This American Life featured the story of Kelly (at left), who we followed through genetic testing for a devastating illness called Huntington’s Disease. On the Media focused on a cautionary tale about a new kind of family, united by a genetic data bank.
