Noah Ovshinsky

Noah comes to WPR from Detroit, where he was an award-winning journalist with that city’s public radio station (WDET). While in the “Motor City”, he covered virtually every beat there is in a newsroom. He was also the station’s primary backup anchor.

Noah’s work has appeared nationally on shows, including “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” WNYC’s “The Takeaway” and “Only a Game.”

Before jumping into public radio, Noah worked as a director and producer at HKO Media, an Ann Arbor-based video production company. While at HKO, he received a Michigan Emmy for his documentary about a World War II hero called, “Raoul Wallenberg: One Person Can Make a Difference.”

Noah’s previous radio experience also includes a two-year stint at Chicago’s WGN Radio, where he served in numerous positions including morning news producer. Growing up in metro Detroit, Noah earned a liberal arts degree from Kalamazoo College.

When he’s not in the office (or working from home), Noah enjoys getting out into the woods as much as possible. He is also obsessed with apples and butter.
