Tracy Wahl is the executive editor of the Regional Journalism Collaboration for Sustainability, a Corporation for Public Broadcasting-supported partnership of public television and radio stations in three western cities, which will produce multimedia reports on important sustainability issues.

Previously, Wahl served as executive producer of “Morning Edition,” where she led initiatives focusing on sustainability. Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and raised in Denver, she worked to expand the show’s coverage of the American West.

This included a reporting trip with host Steve Inskeep along the U.S.-Mexico border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego. She also produced and reported with Inskeep from the Arctic on climate change, Karachi, Pakistan, on the growth of cities, and Bayou La Batre, Alabama, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Wahl has been at the cutting-edge of broadcast and digital media, playing a key role in the development of the popular NPR podcast, “Hidden Brain.” She also guided the live coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

Wahl was part of a Peabody Award-winning team in 2013 for “The Race Card Project,” an NPR series in which people were encouraged to talk about race by sharing a six-word essay. She also was part of the “Morning Edition” team that received a Murrow Award in 2014 for “Crime in Latin America,” a three-part series from a Venezuelan prison.

She holds a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado Boulder.
