Tricia Bobeda is a digital producer for Chicago Public Media and co-host of the Nerdette Podcast. You might hear her on WBEZ talking nerdy or chasing parrots once in a while. Most of the time she's helping the rest of the crew get stories, maps and the occasional old-timey video to Chicagoans via the Internet.
Prior to joining WBEZ's web team, Tricia reported for its news desk and worked on the Front and Center series. After studying journalism at Northwestern University's Medill School, she spend several years as a reporter for the Lansing State Journal. Her favorite week is always teaching high school journalists at the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association's annual summer workshop. She was a finalist in the KCRW 2013 Radio Race.
Tricia loves finding and telling stories. She makes a mean guacamole and her socks rarely match.
