As producer for Business Beat, I handled the on-air and online production, editing and sometimes reporting tasks associated with running the show each week. I counseled print and radio reporters throughout the reporting process and walked them through crafting audio pieces. My responsibilities also included hosting, assembling the story packages and posting and promoting online.

I also contributed reporting for the program. One of my assignments included this special coverage edition of the show, which focused on the November 2015 student protests at the University of Missouri:
