Sasa Woodruff

News Director

Expertise: News wrangling, longform story editing, documentary

Education: U.C. Berkeley + University of Utah



I moved to Boise in the fall of 2019 to run the Boise State Public Radio newsroom as news director. I help shape the local stories you hear with a phenomenal team of reporters and hosts. Before Boise, I reported, produced and edited for NPR and American Public Media on everything from racism against Roma in Slovakia to a glow in the dark ramen popup.

I have degrees in journalism and German language and literature from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, where I grew up. I’m also a graduate of U.C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism’s documentary film program.

When I’m not thinking about audio, I’m in the kitchen fermenting cabbages or persimmons and piping cream puffs. For the record, I was into sourdough before it was COVID cool. Oh, and I don’t have a stomach.
