Mary Scott Hodgin will join WBHM as its health and science reporter. Hodgin has been a freelance reporter for the station since 2015 covering topics ranging from downtown revitalization to sewer spill notification. With a solid background in radio storytelling, Hodgin is excited to apply those skills to the science beat.
“I am delighted to join WBHM full time,” says Hodgin. “I look forward to connecting listeners in and around Birmingham to more coverage of health and science.”
Hodgin graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in social and biological adaptation – a self-designed degree that combines biology, anthropology, and documentary to study human behavior. Fluent in Spanish, she most recently produced videos and wrote for a national health care company.
“Mary Scott is curious and energetic – great qualities in a journalist,” says WBHM News Director Gigi Douban. “We’re thrilled to have a dynamic multimedia journalist like her join the WBHM team.”
Hodgin joins WBHM on September 10.
