Alana Casanova-Burgess is a producer for On The Media. She comes to OTM after nearly five years with WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show, the best local news talk show in the land, where she produced segments on everything from police-community relations to art and neuroscience (plus some other stuff like a public radio national election network). Her work has been recognized by the ONA, PRNDI and the Council on Contemporary Families. She’s also responsible for “Es La Hora”, OTM’s 2014 special program on Latino media issues. Alana is a bilingual native New Yorker with roots in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Dominican Republic, and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. When she’s not thinking about radio, she’s booking airplane tickets and getting the **** out of here.
