Tracy Wahl

In her nearly 20 years at NPR, Tracy Wahl established herself as a champion for innovation in the newsroom. She was among the first at NPR to embrace social media as a way to engage audiences and deepen our journalism through crowd-sourced reporting. She launched Morning Edition’s first Twitter account, and led the program’s early ventures into multi-platform storytelling.

Now an independent producer, Wahl is passionate about experimentation, and incubating new ideas and talent. During her tenure as Executive Producer of Morning Edition she made the program a start-up space for great work. She launched the Morning Edition Book Club, oversaw the ambitious, award-winning cross-network “Borderland” series, and inaugurated The Race Card Project with Michele Norris as a regular feature of the program.
