Eve Troeh is senior editor for the sustainability desk at Marketplace. Previously Eve served as the founding News Director at WWNO-FM in New Orleans, La., helping build the station's local news department.
Eve 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. She also filed stories from the Gulf of Mexico after the BP oil spill.
Prior to Marketplace, Eve 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.
Eve 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.”
Eve 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, Eve grew up in Sainte Genevieve, Mo., and now lives in Los Angeles.Twitter: evetroeh
