Jamyla Krempel

Digital Producer

Jamyla came to us from Delmarva Public Radio, where she was a reporter and local host for All Things Considered.  Thanks to funding from local foundations and members of the WYPR Board of Directors, she's helping us produce "The Lines Between Us." At Delmarva Public Radio, Jamyla was awarded "2011 Best News Series" by the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association for her look at racial inequality in Somerset County’s government, and she's covered redistricting, same-sex marriage, and the depictions of minorities on television.  She also led an NPR-guided revamp of the Delmarva Public Radio website.
