Sarah Tucker got her start in journalism at a young age, writing for her elementary school’s newsletter. She didn’t realize journalism was her calling until her senior year of college when she was an editor at The Daily Cougar, the University of Houston’s student-run publication.
After graduating from UH in 2009 with a degree in anthropology, Sarah attended the University of Missouri. She is currently finishing her masters project evaluating Mizzou’s convergence journalism education. And by completing, she means procrastinating. She checks daily to see if the project has finished itself. So far, no luck.
While at Mizzou, Sarah was introduced to radio at KBIA, an NPR-affiliate station in Columbia, Mo. KBIA exposed her to an entire new way of thinking about storytelling and journalism via sound. She hopes to improve her storytelling skills while interning at KUHF with features that provide insight into the heart of trends, people and places.
Sarah has experience as a reporter, editor and copy editor at publications in Texas, Missouri, North Dakota and Kansas. She is currently a copy editor for The Galveston County Daily News and teaches a journalism lab at UH.
