About

Samantha Wright is a host/reporter and a producer for Idaho Matters. Her spot reporting, special projects, and audio production have been featured on Voice of America, National Public Radio, This American Life, National Native News, the Northwest Radio Network and on The New York Times website. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, she ventured out everyday on empty roads to work alone in the Boise State Public Radio Studios except for the occasional visit from an engineer to fix stuff. In 2020, she froze a lot when the heat got turned off in the office to save energy and grew very adept at maneuvering around the hundreds of geese who, in the absence of people, took over the parking lot and refused to get out of the way.
