Reporter, On the Media
Micah Loewinger is a reporter for On the Media, where he focuses on internet culture, politics, and the far-right.
His investigation into Zello, a walkie-talkie app used for recruitment and organizing by militia groups, won the John M. Higgins Award for Best In-Depth/Enterprise Reporting. His piece on a Syrian refugee camp in a Swedish Wild West theme park was a finalist for a Livingston Award for international reporting.
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. 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.
