I was involved with this engagement project at KPCC from beginning to end. The radio station was doing a series on the housing crisis in Southern California, and the editors wanted to include a callout on social media and on the radio to get stories from our audience. Here are some of the tasks I did:

  • Brainstormed different questions for the callout
  • Wrote the language for radio and social media:

    • Scripted and published a compelling Instagram story to solicit submission
    • Retweeted responses on Twitter
    • Compiled responses for a web round-up
    • Created an Instagram story comparing some the median rent amount in some of the responses from decades ago and the median rent in those neighborhoods now. Watch it here: 09.01.17 My First Rent
