Reporting for Radio

  • Experimental Station 6100 South Blackstone Avenue Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

Radio is made of tape and interviews and sound. But HOW exactly do you get all that? Veteran Chicago radio reporter Linda Lutton of WBEZ will offer insider tips for getting good tape—from interviews to ambient sound. She will also go over things to consider when reporting for radio versus print.


Linda Lutton is a reporter for WBEZ-Chicago. She switched from print to radio 10 years ago. She won a Peabody for her work on stories told from Harper High School on Chicago’s South Side; a Peabody nomination for a documentary told from a grammar school on the West Side; and a bunch of other awards. She loves making stories for your ears.
