Ethan Lindsey first worked on the Marketplace Morning Report in 2004 and returned in 2010. In the interim, he worked as a reporter at the Oregon Public Broadcasting. One of Lindsey’s first jobs out of college was clipping and summarizing news for the President and the White House.
In 2009, Lindsey won a Peabody Award for his work as a reporter at Oregon Public Broadcasting. He was also awarded a Fulbright fellowship, which allowed him to report in Germany for a year. One of the highlights of his fellowship was a trip to Trossingen, Germany, the birthplace of the harmonica. He had the pleasure of interviewing the curator of the harmonica museum and reporting on the history of the instrument.
Lindsey graduated from UC Berkeley, with a degree in English. In addition, he received his Masters at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
Lindsey currently resides in Los Angeles and enjoys hiking, camping and skiing in his free time. He is a die-hard Cal football fan and has been known to globe-trot in order to catch a game.
