Wilson Sayre was born and bred in Raleigh, N.C., home of the only real barbecue in the country (we're talking East here). She graduated from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where she studied Philosophy, a.k.a. the scholastic pursuit of legitimizing opinion.
Sayre took a year off school to live in a Zen monastery in Japan and quickly realized that a life of public radio would be a bit more forgiving. Upon returning to the States, she helped launch a news program at UNC’s college-radio station, WXYC. Through error and error, she taught herself how to make radio stories.
She worked with NPR member station WUNC in Chapel Hill, interning for The Story with Dick Gordon. Then she went on to help to run WUNC's Youth Radio Institute, teaching at-risk teenagers how to make radio.
Sayre likes to keep chickens, pickle okra and make sound collages.
She's at WLRN for an eight-month fellowship. She is prepared with a case of sunscreen and a waterproof recorder. She's on a mission to get more Miamians to wear overalls.
As the morning producer for WLRN, Julia can make the perfect espresso while half asleep.
She was born and raised in Miami and graduated from Florida International University, where she was a multimedia reporter for the South Florida News Service.
Julia fell in love with public radio, interned with WLRN and then fell in love with Miami. She learns something new about Miami every day -- like who designed South Beach's pastel palette.
Julia now keeps FIU and WLRN connected as co-director of alumni relations for the university's chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
According to Julia, the only thing better than chocolate is great audio.
