About

Hi there, and thanks for your interest. I’m a multimedia journalist based in New York. I’ve worked most recently at The New York Times, but you can also find my previous work at NPR, the BBC, and other outlets.


I have also produced and hosted podcasts for entities ranging from The Poetry Foundation to Stanford University.

I’ve got 16 years of experience in public broadcasting, beginning at NPR–where I was a producer, editor and director on many shows you’ve likely heard if you’re an NPR listener — including All Things Considered and later Wait,Wait… Don’t Tell Me, which I helped launch. I moved on-air after that, and from 2002-2008 was a reporter at WBEZ / Chicago Public Radio, where I started and developed two new beats for the station: criminal justice and business.

I’m also interested in passing on what I’ve learned and am still learning about the news and covering it: for the past several years I’ve taught radio reporting and production at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

You can follow me on Twitter @diantha, on Facebook…or drop me a line.
