Eve Troeh is News Director at WWNO-FM in New Orleans, Louisiana, helping build the first public radio news department in the station’s 40-year history. She reported for the Marketplace Sustainability Desk from 2010 to 2013.

Troeh started at Marketplace in 2008 as part of the Marketplace Money production staff. Joining Marketplace’s sustainability desk in 2010, her first major assignment was attending the 2010 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Cancun, Mexico, an experience she called the best, and most rigorous, introduction to global sustainability issues. Troeh also filed stories from the Gulf of Mexico after the BP oil spill. 

Troeh enjoys her work as a radio reporter because it provides the opportunity to go behind the scenes, “Whether it’s a forgotten 19th century steam pipe system, international climate change negotiations, or a free-range hog farm, I get a thrill out of seeing how things work.”

Prior to Marketplace, Troeh worked as a freelance reporter in New Orleans, filing stories for the major public radio programs before and after Hurricane Katrina. She also served as an editor at the public radio music show American Routes.

Troeh holds undergraduate degrees in anthropology and journalism from the University of Southern California, and attended the University of Oslo as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar.

Originally from Juneau, Alaska, Troeh grew up in Sainte Genevieve, Mo., and now lives in New Orleans, La.
