Katie Meyer was WITF’s Capitol Bureau Chief from 2016-2020. While at WITF, she covered all things state politics for public radio stations throughout Pennsylvania. Katie came to Harrisburg by way of New York City, where she worked at Fordham University’s public radio station, WFUV, as an anchor, general assignment reporter, and co-host of an original podcast. A 2016 graduate of Fordham, she earned several awards for her work at WFUV, including four 2016 Gracies.
Katie is a native New Yorker, though she originally hails from Troy, a little farther up the Hudson River. She can attest that the bagels are still pretty good there.
WITF's Capitol Bureau Chief Desk is partially funded through generous gifts made in the memory of Tony May through the Anthony J. May Memorial Fund.
Episode 3 of WITF’s State House Sound Bites podcast (recorded the morning of April 21) covers a hectic week in Harrisburg. The House and Senate were both in session, working to get several large pieces of legislation out of committee and onto the floor.
So which bills should you be paying attention to? Listen in for a detailed rundown of the most consequential developments, including the state’s longstanding deadlock over charter school regulations, a controversial proposal to let permitted teachers carry guns in school, the House GOP’s sustained push for liquor privatization, the one-year anniversary of medical marijuana legalization, and plenty more.
WITF’s Katie Meyer unpacks it all with two veteran bureau chiefs–PennLive’s Jan Murphy, and Robert Swift of the Times Shamrock newspapers.
