Reporter Stina Sieg on Migrant Workers, Drive-In Movies, Isolation Loaves

Stina Sieg / Colorado Public Radio

This week on Booked, KDNK's Gavin Dahl speaks to Colorado Public Radio's western slope reporter Stina Sieg about her coverage during the coronavirus outbreak. Her reporting over the past month included a story about migrant workers in Palisade, the Delta Tru Vu Drive-In opening for the season, and the rise in baking of isolation loaves and quarantine cookies during the stay at home order. She says her reporting has changed dramatically over the past few weeks, and sometimes she wishes she could just do comforting stories all the time, but also likes the challenge of finding the human side of tough subjects. 

Gavin became one of the youngest station managers in public radio on February 1, 2017. He is a writer and producer with a passion for community media. Prior to starting at KDNK as news director in 2016, Gavin worked for national radio programs Alternative Radio with David Barsamian and Nonprofit Radio with Tony Martignetti along with local stations KGNU Boulder, KYRS Spokane, KRBX Boise, KAOS Olympia, and Air America Radio affiliate KPTK Seattle. His nonprofit management experience includes Open Media Foundation, where he led a government transparency team, and Common Frequency, where his policy advocacy supported dozens of noncommercial radio startups. Boulder Weekly, Raw Story, Austin American-Statesman, Boise Weekly, and The Sopris Sun have published his reporting. His TV credits include directing teams at Colorado Channel, crewing for Democracy Now!, and hosting on Free Speech TV. He graduated from the Evergreen State College in 2008 with a BA in media production and community organizing.
