Rachel Solomon is a producer at KUOW. She always wanted to be a writer, but after sitting in on a live show on her first day as an intern on The Conversation, she felt drawn to the excitement of public radio. Since then, Rachel has filled in on KUOW's talk shows, filed news stories and helped out with pledge drives. She loves the way sound can engage an audience and believes radio is the most powerful medium for storytelling.
A native Seattleite, Rachel holds a B.A. in journalism from the University of Washington and has written for The Seattle Times and produced and hosted her own storytelling podcast. For a short time, she also produced the morning news show for KIRO–FM Radio. She is passionate about women's and gender issues, education, and health and nutrition, and guiltlessly reads extensive entertainment news too.
In her spare time, Rachel enjoys watching old movies, swing dancing and other relics of bygone eras.
