Eve Troeh is a radio reporter based in New Orleans. Her work is heard coast to coast on National Public Radio programs, as well as Weekend America, Voice of America, and others. Since Hurricane Katrina, she has reported on her city at large, covering topics ranging from public policy to public reveling (as well as public policy about public reveling), crime, schools, doctors, friends, foes, houses, homes, tourists and, of course, FEMA. Troeh co-founded the audio blog and weekly radio series "Street Talk" for local WWOZ-FM, New Orleans's Jazz and Heritage Station, in 2006.
Troeh began her work in radio as an intern at NPR's cultural desk, fetching scripts and using the web to assist reporters. She then came down to New Orleans to work for the syndicated music and documentary program American Routes, created and hosted by Louisiana folklorist Nick Spitzer. She got to meet legendary musicians Allen Toussaint and Willie Nelson in the same day. In 2004, Troeh took a Rotary International fellowship in Oslo, Norway, to experience total darkness and to study media, democracy, and development with journalists from around the world. She returned to New Orleans as soon as she could, just as she later did after Hurricane Katrina.
