Louisville NPR station hires economy reporter
WFPL 89.3 in Louisville has hired Roxanne L. Scott as an economy reporter, a new area of focus for the newsroom.
As a freelance reporter, Scott has covered everything from art in the South Bronx to poaching in Africa. In 2015 she was an International Women’s Media Foundation fellow, where she reported on democracy and governance in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Her stories have been published in mainstream outlets such as NPR, BBC and Public Radio International, as well as on sites such as Okayafrica, Voices of NY and Africa Times.
In her past life, Scott worked in social work and education. She’s from Queens, New York, and is a graduate of the CUNY School of Journalism.
“I’m excited to cover labor, business and other issues that concern people and their money in Kentucky and beyond,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to work in a newsroom, and coming to WFPL News allows me to collaborate with other reporters and their beats to tell the best possible stories.”
