Before landing in the Emerald City, David Hyde tried out several others, including New York, Tokyo and Portland, Oregon. As a student at Reed College in Portland, David discovered two loves: His love for the Pacific Northwest and for his spouse who is now a professor at the University of Washington.
David started in radio as a college DJ. Listeners responded with enthusiasm, he says, sometimes by throwing beer bottles at the station. In New York, David worked as the managing editor and reporter for a regional newspaper. He has also freelanced as a radio correspondent for National Public Radio and Pacifica Network News, and written for publications across the political spectrum including Salon, the New York Sun and Grist.
In addition to his reporting background, David has also pursued graduate work in U.S. cultural history (ABD); and he's taught college courses in U.S. cultural history, film and history, and American popular culture.
At KUOW since 2004, David has also worked on Weekday, and Speakers' Forum. David says his main goal as the producer and backup host on The Conversation is to create radio that really matters to KUOW listeners.
The Conversation covers current events in politics, public affairs, culture and science. Host Ross Reynolds opens the phone for listeners to participate in spirited discussions on the issues of the day.
