Marianne McCune

Reporter, The Stakes

Marianne McCune is a correspondent and editor for NPR’s Rough Translation, a show about how the things we talk about in the U.S. are being talked about in other parts of the world. While reporting in New York for NPR (Planet Money) and WNYC, she followed her stories to Pakistan, Ethiopia, Haiti, Mexico, Colombia and elsewhere. She also founded Radio Rookies, WNYC's award-winning series of stories from New York teenagers. She’s currently based in San Francisco, where she has also produced a dozen audio documentaries that, via a location-based app called Detour, move listeners through stories — from a history of the gay rights movement in the Castro to a skeptic’s walk through SFMOMA’s art galleries.
