Reporter/Producer, On the Media
Micah Loewinger is a Reporter/Producer for On the Media, where he’s learning to use fewer adverbs. A deep dive into the wild world of Twitch, his piece on a Syrian refugee camp in a Swedish Wild West theme park, and an hour on the war on drugs are among his proudest contributions to the gilded OTM pantheon.
Before stumbling into a job at OTM, Micah interned for NPR Music, Radiolab, Soundcheck, WNET’s Great Performances, and Bush Radio in Cape Town, South Africa, the continent’s oldest community-run station. Everything he knows about this medium he learned from the best frickin’ college radio station in the world, WNYU 89.1FM, where he served as Program Director, made janky radio documentaries, and interviewed James Chance, Swamp Dogg, King Tuff, White Fence, Jerry Casale of DEVO, Lenny Kaye of Patti Smith Group, and many other musicians and artists. Catch him as an erratic host of the 60’s-70’s experimental psychedelic radio show, Plastic Tales From the Marshmallow Dimension. Micah likes to cook borscht and scroll through Twitter.
