Laura Herberg is a Community Reporter for 101.9 WDET, telling stories about people inhabiting the Detroit region and the issues that affect us here. She was named the Michigan Associated Press Best Reporter for radio broadcasting in 2018 and 2017. In 2012, she was awarded a SoundCloud Fellowship for her project, “Listen to Detroit.” She also is the creator of Complete Me, a podcast with only three episodes about how she has trouble completing tasks.
Before becoming a radio reporter Laura worked, among other things, as a buser, a magician’s assistant, a telemarketer, and one memorable internship at a record label where she had to pick up dog poop, run to the ATM, and pick out movies at the video store for her boss. Herberg is originally from the Seattle area but lived in five other cities before settling on Detroit in 2010.Follow @HerbergRadio
