KPLU's and N3's Coeur d'Alene-based reporter, has been covering North Idaho and Eastern Washington for us since July, 2008. Before that, he worked in commercial radio, weekly newspapers, and served as Spokane Public Radio's news director for about 17 years. He lives in Spokane and is a graduate of Washington State University. Doug's memorable moment in public radio: "Going into the mountains with a hydrologist who was collecting snow samples. That made for one of the best 'sound' stories I've ever produced."
