Wyoming Public Media’s (WPM) Caroline Ballard was chosen to participate in National Public Radio’s (NPR) Audio Storytelling Workshop, where public media creators will bring their ideas to Washington, D.C., for three days of planning, training and collaborating. NPR received more than 100 applications.

Ballard’s topic, “Gender Parity Problem in State Legislatures,” builds upon WPM’s recent presentation with Leap into Leadership and Leadership Wyoming Class of 2016 that focused on the low number of women in Wyoming’s Legislature. She will work with Utah Public Radio on a radio series that addresses this issue in states with low female legislative representation.

“This award is a testament to the strength of WPM reporters and their ability to report on issues that have state and national implications,” says Christina Kuzmych, WPM general manager. “Caroline had stiff competition from some of the strongest national public radio stations with news departments of 20 to 30 reporters. The fact that she competed persuasively and won, speaks of the value NPR places on WPM’s news operation.”

Ballard received a B.A. in global liberal studies from New York University and her M.A. in journalism from Columbia University. Her work has appeared on Marketplace, NPR, the Village Voice and New York’s WFUV-FM.
