Molly Born

Molly Born is making the transition from print to radio reporting as a fellow with Report for America, an effort to strengthen local journalism in Appalachia and other undercovered areas. She’s based in Williamson, Mingo County, and will cover the state’s southern coalfields.

A native of Marion County in north-central West Virginia, Molly attended Fairmont State University and Northwestern University. She spent six years at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, where she won multiple awards covering beats including crime, local government, and education. In pursuit of the story, she has spent the night at a palatial Hare Krishna commune, reported on location from the middle of a four-lane highway, and (politely) commandeered a passing car to hear the verdict in a murder trial.

Outside of work, Molly enjoys doing Zumba, reading, and exploring new places.
