REPORTER ERIC WHITNEY COVERS LOCAL HEALTH NEWS

Eric Whitney joined CPR in 2007 to focus on health and medical news around the state. His interest in journalism and radio started early.

“When I was nine years old my family moved to California for a year. My parents bought a portable cassette recorder so we could send tapes back to our grandparents. I immediately got hooked on playing with sound and gave that little recorder a serious workout over the next several years. I've always been fascinated by the voices and music coming magically out of the air and through a speaker.”
