WUKY/NPR alum Ashley Westerman talks about new gig producing Ukraine Stories podcast
Plug Your Podcast is an ongoing segment where we introduce you to some of the people in and out of our area producing new and specialized audio content. Former NPR Morning Edition producer Ashley Westerman got her start right here at WUKY as a student reporter. She now works as a freelancer and has just returned from her latest project, a 20-episode podcast series called Ukraine Stories, from FEARLESS Media - where she worked alongside former NPR journalists Kelly McEvers, Tonya Mosley and host David Greene to cover the war in Ukraine one person at a time.
Ukraine Stories chronicles the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and the war that followed -- one person at a time. Each weekday, listeners are immersed in the world of someone who has been touched by this war. Hosted by David Greene, produced by Ashley Westerman. From Fearless Media, in association with Spotify.
