Becky Fogel

Production Assistant

Becky Fogel is Science Friday's production assistant. Before joining SciFri, Becky was a reporter at 103.3 KWBU FM, the NPR-affiliate station in Waco, Texas. There she covered local news from education and immigration to arts and health. She also covered national breaking news stories, including the 2013 explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, for NPR and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC/Radio-Canada). 

Becky grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts but doesn't have the accent to prove it. When she's not hounding scientists, you can find her running (or let's be honest, walking) in her local park, searching for delicious BBQ spots, and then ... eating ice cream. 

You can follow her on Twitter @beckyfogel.
