KSJD is super excited to introduce our new News Director, Lucas Brady Woods!
Originally from Southern California, Lucas spent the last decade living in New York City, which is where he started his journalism career. He’s been an NPR junkie for as long as he can remember, but really fell in love with reporting radio news at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where he received his master’s degree. He’s reported on a variety of issues, including covering healthcare at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City. Regardless of the topic he’s covering, Lucas’ work focuses on serving the public with responsible, factual reporting. He’s eager to personally get to know the communities of Montezuma County and the Four Corners, so he can provide the best local coverage possible. Before he became a journalist, Lucas produced indie movies, documentaries, and commercials. He’s also had a lifelong fascination with history and, despite living in the city for so long, with nature as well. On a personal note, he’s looking forward to exploring the ancient sites and natural beauty of the area!
Lucas will be hosting Morning Edition and reporting the news, so tune in to hear him on the KSJD airwaves starting Thursday morning!
