Bret reports on the West Valley (and elsewhere) for KJZZ. He was previously the Managing Editor for News at WSKG in upstate New York. Before that, he was a producer at WYPR in Baltimore and at Wisconsin Public Radio. His stories have aired on NPR’s Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, and Here & Now. Way back when, he started as an intern and fill-in producer at WNYC’s On the Media, and then helped out on The Brian Lehrer Show and Soundcheck.
