Margaret J. Krauss is WESA’s reporter for Keystone Crossroads, the statewide reporting initiative that covers problems facing Pennsylvania’s cities and possible solutions. Before joining Keystone Crossroads, Margaret produced a 48-part radio series about Pittsburgh’s lesser-known history, biking 2,000 miles around the region to do so.
Margaret has researched and reported for The Nature Conservancy and National Geographic books, Pittsburgh Magazine, NEXTpittsburgh, and The Allegheny Front.
Before answering Pittsburgh’s siren call and returning to the city in 2012, she worked in Washington, D.C. at National Geographic Kids magazine. There she learned the Latin names of all 13 otter species and a love for interoffice mail.
