Julianne's career in public radio began during a work-study job at WFUV at Fordham University in the Bronx.
In those pre-digital days, she manually 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 to cover everything from politics on Capitol Hill to blind oarsmen on the Anacostia River. Her reports have been carried on Monitor Radio, NPR and other networks.
Since returning to New York in 2000, Julianne has focused on helping others craft audio stories. For eight years, she led a new generation 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 oversees the newsroom's coverage of immigration and legal affairs, maintains the station's breaking news protocols and coordinates training. She also teaches journalism to graduate students at Fordham, CUNY and Columbia, and is a trainer for Public Radio News Directors, Inc.
