This year’s “Best in Show” traces his roots back to a pair of devoted dog lovers in Durham.
Casey McDermott, who contributes to “Blips,” is a reporter at New Hampshire Public Radio covering politics and policy, with a focus on data and accountability reporting.
Prior to joining NHPR, Casey worked at The Concord Monitor and held internships at ProPublica, the Student Press Law Center and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
She studied journalism and sociology at Penn State but spent most of her days (and nights) in the newsroom of the independent student newspaper, The Daily Collegian. The Collegian was recognized nationally for its work during Casey’s time as its managing editor and editor-in-chief.
