Local Host, Morning Edition

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 edits and does the occasional interview for Sheilah Kast's On The Record, infrequently 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, 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. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nathan has called Charm City home since 2005.

David Simpson

We stroll along the banks of Loch Raven reservoir – one of the three primary sources of drinking water to Baltimore City and Baltimore County, listening to wildlife and author and photographer David Simpson's story of creating a children's book inspired by this place. His book, called The Swan at Loch Raven, is designed for beginning readers.

The book is available at Greetings & Readings, The Ivy Bookshop, and Amazon. David will be reading from the book at a National Reading Month event at Loch Raven United Methodist Church on March 3rd.
