Annie Wu

News Director

Annie Wu is the News Director for Ideastream Public Media. She began her radio career reading the news on KLA, the UCLA campus radio station.

After college, she ventured to the East coast for graduate school and landed an internship on NPR’s science desk. That year, WAMU, the public radio station in Washington, DC, hired Annie as a freelance reporter which turned into a full time reporter position. She eventually became the station’s interim News Director. Annie returned to NPR in 2000 as a producer for Weekend All Things Considered.

In 2002, she moved to the North coast of Cleveland. Here, Annie freelanced as a reporter for WCPN and independently produced a radio documentary, which was distributed on the then-nascent Public Radio Exchange. “The Orphan Train” earned the distinction as PRX’s most licensed piece of 2004.

Annie spent nearly a decade as a stay-at-home mom raising two kids before returning to Ideastream Public Media as Associate Editor. She became News Director in 2018.
