Environmental reporter provides context on West Virginia spill and why he works where he does

Here is an excellent interview of Charleston Gazette reporter Ken Ward on the West Virginia chemical spill.
This is a great example of a longtime environmental reporter with significant background and expertise who is able to put an immediate crisis quickly into context.
Kudos go to the journalist and to NPR which was smart enough to seek him out. It’s a great way to advance the circulation of quality reporting and observation.
Stay with it to the end to hear Ken’s take on having a sense of place and why he reports from where he does.
