Posted on Updated on

EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Feb. 7, 2013

WUEC alumna Breann Schossow will talk Monday at UW-Eau Claire about her experiences at National Public Radio (NPR).

The informal gathering, co-sponsored by WUEC-FM and the UW-Eau Claire chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), will take place between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. in the Hibbard Hall Penthouse. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Schossow worked as an intern on the national desk of NPR in the fall and currently is a research assistant for NPR reporter Barbara Bradley Hagerty. Schossow will talk about the stories she helped develop, what it’s like at a national radio news network, and how she expects the experience to shape her career.

While at UW-Eau Claire, Schossow was president of the UW-Eau Claire SPJ chapter, served as senior producer and host of Blugold Performance of the Air on WUEC-FM, and was both managing editor and editor-in-chief of The Spectator. She also worked part time as a reporter for the Leader-Telegram and interned with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Schossow received SPJ’s Julie Galvan Outstanding Graduate in Journalism Award in 2012 and was the 13th Ann Devroy Fellow at The Washington Post in 2011.
