Angela Nhi Nguyen is a senior at WSU Everett studying Strategic Communication. She might live on the west side of the state, but she’s no stranger to Pullman, nor is she unfamiliar with radio (or as she calls it,“RADio”). She started out on the main campus pursuing a degree in journalism and media production. In those days, you could catch her talking the talk on KUGR or on Cable 8 as talent.
She also worked at then-Northwest Public Radio as an announcer and assistant producer for the local All Things Considered. Angela was a freelance reporter for Northwest News Network and even made it onto NPR a couple times.
Over the years, Angela has received awards for her work including a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, two PRNDIs, and a Korva Coleman Excellence Award. She was also part of NPR’s Next Generation Radio Project.
Nowadays, Angela works at KUOW – the place she considers her “radio womb.” She serves as an occasional general assignment news reporter and mentor for the station’s youth media program, RadioActive.
After graduation, her plans involve traveling and producing podcasts. She eventually hopes to have a successful career in voice acting. Until then, Angela will continue telling people about her anecjokes (anecdotes with cheesy twists) and petting her cats that she’s furry allergic to.
