For 18 years, Janice Windborne was a public radio journalist based in Minnesota and California. She covered stories in many countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Eastern Europe and Russia, winning awards for investigative, legal and human rights reporting. In 1999, she led a team of journalists in Albania as part of a multinational effort to serve the information needs of refugees during the Kosovo War.
Her dissertation and later research led her to Ghana in West Africa, where she investigated the use of media by women and children’s rights advocates as the media environment evolved into more private, more commercial models. More recently, she has worked with teens and refugee groups in Columbus, Ohio.
