Tim Lambert, Special Projects Editor / Morning Edition Host / WITF

Hey there.

I’m WITF's special projects editor, and get up at "0-dark-30" to host both Morning Edition and The Morning Agenda podcast.

As a host, I get to connect with people every day and serve as their trusted guide through the news of the day.

When I'm wearing my editor hat, I work with our journalists on deep dives and help them craft audio stories that are intimate and unique. I also set aside time to work on my own pieces -- like documenting the evolution of the Flight 93 crash site over 20 years and telling an unknown story from the D-Day invasion.

My work has been honored nationally (six-time RTDNA National Edward R. Murrow Award recipient), regionally and statewide.

A life-long Pennsylvanian, I count Hopewell, Indiana (IUP), Lewistown, Gettysburg, Harrisburg, and Millersville as places I’ve lived.

New Cumberland has been my neighborhood since 2009, where I live with my wife, Amy, and our dog, Happy.

This is home.

It's a privilege to tell the story of the people across the region day after day.
