Emily Henderson is the News Apprentice for KPCC’s Take Two. She enjoys working on this SoCal-focused show as a way of getting to know the region she’s now calling home.

Emily is loving the chance to live out her public radio dreams. She’s gotten to produce a wide range of stories from little known slices of L.A. history to the first Mars mission to launch from the west coast. She was previously an intern on Marketplace’s flagship afternoon show.

Emily originally hails from Olympia, Washington but after attending Occidental College (class of 2017), SoCal stole her heart and she can’t imagine living anywhere else.
