Mary Helen Miller joined the staff at the Chattanooga Times Free Press as a multimedia reporter in 2013. She produces audio, video, and graphics for the Web, and occasionally writes stories.
Before starting at the Times Free Press, Mary Helen worked as a radio reporter at WUTC, the NPR affiliate station in Chattanooga. She won an Edward R. Murrow award for a story she produced there about the anniversary of the 2011 tornadoes that hit the Chattanooga region.
Mary Helen began in journalism as a print reporter, interning at the Christian Science Monitor, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. She graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine, where she was a visual art and art history major, and editor-in-chief of the Bowdoin Orient.
While she’s not crafting stories for the paper, Mary Helen can be found painting or throwing a Frisbee with her mutt (who, yes, can catch it in mid-air).
