Alicia Zuckerman

Senior Producer

Alicia is interim senior producer on The New Yorker Radio Hour. She has loved audio since she was a kid listening to comedy albums and call-in radio advice shows she probably shouldn’t have been listening to. She was a 2023 John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University, exploring ways to make radio and podcasts accessible for people who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing. Before that, she was Editorial Director/Executive Editor for On-Demand Audio at WLRN in Miami, where she developed and edited narrative, investigative and explanatory audio journalism, including podcasts, documentaries and live events. The WLRN newsroom was the 2021 winner of the national Edward R. Murrow Award for overall excellence in large market radio. Prior to that she was an arts and culture reporter for WNYC and New York magazine, and a USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism fellow. She has won awards from the Third Coast International Audio Festival, SPJ Sigma Delta Chi, NABJ, NAHJ and others. She is a former board president for Public Media Journalists Association (PMJA), and has served as an advisory board member for AIR’s New Voices. She created, produced and hosted "The Sally J. Freedman Reality Tour," an audio tour of Miami Beach with Judy Blume, where the beloved author spent, in her words, "two of the most important years of my childhood."
