Adriene Hill is the senior multimedia reporter for LearningCurve.

In elementary school, she figured out how to hack Scantron forms (though she never used this power for evil). In high school, she sat in the back of math class and attempted to program her TI-81 to do relatively idiotic things.

Prior to joining Marketplace in 2010, she worked at WBEZ in Chicago, first as an intern, then producer of the local show Eight Forty-Eight, then news desk editor and reporter. Hill has received numerous awards for her contribution to a project she worked on at WBEZ called "Inside & Out."

They include: Associated Press Illinois – Best Investigative Series and Best Series/Documentary; Lisagor awards – Online Investigative Reporting and Public Affairs Programming; Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi – Public Service Award; RTDNA Murrow Awards – Best Continuing Coverage; and PRNDI National – Best Multi-Media Presentation, First Place Enterprise/Investigative, First Place Series.

Hill is a graduate of Amherst College where she earned her bachelor's degree in political science and economics. She has a Master's degree in political science from Northwestern University.

A native of Celo, N.C., Hill currently resides in Los Angeles where the weather is really as good as people say it is. In her spare time, she likes to hike, cook and sew.
