Piper McDaniel

Journalism is why I get out of bed. I am passionate about holding power to account and serving the greater good through important work. My goal is to strengthen and advance how news is made and disseminated.

Current: Intern on the NPR National Desk

Recent: I covered Portland protests for The Oregonian.

For one year I tracked and reported on the recovery of 121 evacuees of the Camp Fire for this engagement project.

I also developed The Rural News Network, a pilot dissemination project exploring new ways to produce and disseminate news in collaboration with 17 existing rural news outlets.

I won a Los Angeles Associated Press Award for this.

I’m based in the Pacific Northwest and I write about the environment and other interesting things. I’ve written for the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, The Oregonian, High Country News, Economic Hardship Reporting Project and others.
