About Naina

Having found my niche in audio and storytelling, I'm currently a news anchor for NPR affiliate station, Wyoming Public Radio, hosting Morning Edition and reporting for the newsroom. Previously, I was an associate producer for WAMU and NPR's flagship show, "1A", producing conversations on current and international affairs. I completed an internship at NPR's Story Lab developing and building innovative projects to maximize NPR's presence globally and reported for NPR member stations in Michigan. 

Indonesian by nationality, but a mixed Indian-Indonesian in origin, I've roamed around Singapore, U.S. and India extensively. 

I graduated from Michigan State University in 2018, where I pursued a major in journalism and a minor in documentary production.
