Kimberly Haas joined WHYY in 2011, first producing feature stories and then becoming a producer for NewsWorks Tonight. She’s the force behind the show’s series “Recap” and “Story Corner.” Currently, she's drawn to stories on sustainability, urbanism, music and old craft revivals.
Prior to WHYY, Kimberly produced music programs, creating the Public Radio International program Echoes and the documentary series Totally Wired. She earned a bachelors degree in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, and was an M.F.A. candidate in Temple’s radio-television-film program.
When she’s not making radio, Kimberly works for Haverford College, coordinating the Friends Association for Higher Education, a consortium of Quaker colleges. In her spare time, she’s a sacred harp singer, cheesemaker and home canner, and practices pilates and yoga. Kimberly lives in Northern Liberties with her daughter and two pit bull terriers.
The importance of funding for public education is not lost on the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, the eleven-county region’s business advocacy organization that promotes growth and economic development.
Its president and CEO Rob Wonderling spoke with WHYY’s Dave Heller on the chamber’s efforts to improve public education in the region, and the Philadelpha School District in particular, including a surprising support of more taxes for schools.
