Hughes moves to “Marketplace” to focus on educated-related biz and economy coverage
Stephanie Hughes has moved to the public radio show “Marketplace” to cover broad business and economics stories with a focus on education.
She has been a producer at “Marketplace Tech,” which examines the growing digital economy and looks at how technology is changing the work we do every day.
Previously, she worked as a producer for Bloomberg, where she covered finance, technology, and economics. Before that, she worked as the senior producer for “Maryland Morning,” broadcast on WYPR, the NPR affiliate in Baltimore. She’s also reported for other media outlets, including NPR’s “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “The Takeaway,” and Salon.
At WYPR, she helped produce the year-long, multi-platform series “The Lines Between Us,” which won a 2014 duPont-Columbia Award. She’s also interested in using crowdsourcing to create online projects, such as this interactive map of flags around Maryland, made from listener contributions.
Hughes graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in communications, studying at the Annenberg School.
