Amy Kiley

Host, All Things Considered and Marketplace

Amy fell in love with radio while serving as the news director at her college station, Northwestern University’s WNUR. After working as a host and show reporter at Milwaukee Public Radio, Amy headed south to be the local voice of "All Things Considered" for WMFE in Orlando. Now, she’s excited to serve WABE’s Atlanta-area listeners through that role.

Amy has filed stories for NPR, Marketplace, the BBC and a number of national print publications. She has earned fellowships in legal and immigration reporting as well as awards from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, the Associated Press in Florida and other organizations.

Along the way, Amy lived in New Zealand and Argentina and picked up graduate degrees in music and liturgy.
