  • Name: Shannon Geis
  • Department: Interns

Shannon Geis is grew up in rural Nebraska before the big lights lured her to New York where she studied journalism and politics at New York University. A summer interning at Nebraska’s NPR affiliate and semesters hanging out at NYU’s student run radio station, WNYU, cemented her love of public radio. She recently spent a semester at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine and is now back in New York studying oral history at Columbia University. She is particularly interested in understanding places through the voices of the people who experience them every day.
