Ryan Nguyen is the podcast editor for the Daily Emerald, an independent, student-run newspaper at the University of Oregon, and an aspiring investigative reporter. He manages, produces and edits several Emerald Podcast Network programs a week about student government, sports and science.
Nguyen also produces audio stories for Storytime, a weekly radio show focused on free-form narratives, for KWVA Eugene 88.1 FM, the UO campus radio station.
Previously, Nguyen covered student government as a news reporter for the Emerald. His stories appeared once a week in the weekly paper and online. Outside of his beat, he wrote stories spotlighting the dropout rates of UO’s Robert D. Clark Honors College, as well as hazing by a UO fraternity that was later suspended by the university.
He also reported a long-form story for FLUX Magazine, a UO publication and 2018 Pacemaker finalist, about the societal stigma that male nurses face.
Nguyen will graduate from the UO School of Journalism and Communication with a Bachelor of Science in journalism in June 2021.
