Julia Ritchey | Journalist
I’m a North Carolina-based writer, editor and occasional podcaster with an interest in local politics, climate change and popular culture. From my internship at the 2008 Beijing Olympics to riding in Hillary Clinton’s press motorcade through Reno in 2016 — the last 12 years have taken me on assignments all over the world. My work has appeared on NPR, the Associated Press, High Country News, 1A, Here & Now, Carolina Public Press, Savannah Morning News and Voice of America
A few work highlights are below, as well as a link to my newsletter Meat ‘n Three.
When I am not out reporting, you can find me procrastibaking. If you’re ever in Salt Lake City, check out Bread Riot Bakehouse, an artisan bakery I helped open. If you’re ever in Hendersonville, N.C., my hometown, check out Underground Baking Company, another bakery close to my heart.
Produced and scripted three audio slideshows featuring mental health workers and patients for the dedication ceremony of the Huntsman Mental Health Institute. (First slideshow timestamp from 0:00-2:22). Jan. 2021
I have a newsletter called Meat ‘n Three. Let me send you email.
