Rachel Morello

Rachel joined WUWM January 2016 as the station's first education reporter.

Thanks to her Midwestern upbringing, Morello has been able to strike up a conversation with people all over the country. She has lived and worked in Chicago, D.C., Miami and London, interviewing anyone from politicians on Capitol Hill to farmers in rural Indiana.

A graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Morello most recently covered the education beat for StateImpact Indiana, a collaborative radio and television reporting project operated by public media stations throughout the Hoosier state. She traveled the state covering school-related issues, policies and trends from standardized testing to high school diplomas. Her work helped garner StateImpact its third national Edward R. Murrow award in 2015, for excellence in web-based journalism.

A lifelong cheesehead, Rachel likes to spend her weekends cheering on the Packers and Badgers. In her free time, she also enjoys reading, listening to podcasts (Pop Culture Happy Houris her favorite), learning to knit & spending time with family and friends. She recently took up running, and plans to take advantage of Milwaukee’s lakefront to keep the streak alive.
