Newsroom Intern

Molly Wampler is a newsroom intern at Boise State Public Radio. Originally from Berkeley, California, she just graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Washington state. There, Molly worked for her university's newspaper but is stoked to try her hand at and learn all there is to learn about radio journalism.

In her free time, Molly loves biking, cooking, and figuring out what she actually likes to do for fun now that weekends aren't monopolized by schoolwork.
