Charlie Shelton-Ormond

Podcast Producer

Charlie Shelton-Ormond is a podcast producer for WUNC. His fascination for audio storytelling and radio journalism began as a broadcast major at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He began his career as a reporter for Carolina Connection, UNC’s student-led radio news show, where Charlie’s work won multiple Hearst Journalism Awards.

After college, Charlie worked as a producer for “The State of Things” with WUNC, where he developed programs on everything from state politics to popular culture. From there, he dove into the world of podcasting, and produced the long-running American history program “BackStory.” As a producer for “BackStory,” Charlie developed several episodes about North Carolina history, including the life and legacy of civil rights activist and lawyer Pauli Murray, and a tragic fire at a chicken processing plant in Hamlet, NC in 1991.

When he’s not putting together podcasts, Charlie enjoys hosting a weekly radio show about the history of music called “Keeping Time.”
