About Me

Hello! I’m Eli Chen and I’ve been a journalist for more than a decade, and my experience includes reporting for public radio stations, science/environmental journalism and most recently, I served as senior editor of National Geographic’s Overheard podcast. 

Currently, I’m a digital news producer at WUNC 91.5 FM – North Carolina Public Radio, the NPR affiliate that covers the NC Triangle region and beyond. My reporting mainly focuses on stories about the Asian American diaspora, as well as immigration and arts & culture, largely through the lens of race and power.
