Nathan gets to WYPR before sunrise every weekday morning, to make sure listeners start their days with the news they need. Between 5am to 3pm, Nathan serves up news headlines, weather, and the occasional snarky comment. Nathan also does interviews on Sheilah Kast's On The Record, occasionally fills in for Tom Hall on Midday, and co-hosts the Friday morning Spotlight on Station North. When not at WYPR, Nathan teaches a class on audio documentary at Towson University. Before coming to WYPR in September of 2005, Nathan spent 8 years at WAMU in Washington -- working every job from part-time receptionist to on-air host, gaining experience in promotions, fundraising, audience analysis, and program production. Nathan has also served as a fundraising consultant, and helped dozens of public radio stations nationwide with their on-air fundraisers. Nathan originally hails from rural Pennsylvania, but has lived in Baltimore since 2005.
