Amy Drozdowska (aka Amy Dorn) is an award-winning journalist, audio and multimedia producer with over a decade of experience in public radio journalism – in the US and internationally.
She’s produced, reported, edited and hosted radio programs for a variety of networks and institutions, including NPR, the BBC, and Radio Netherlands Worldwide. She’s worked as a staff producer for WBEZ Chicago on Navy Pier, where she had to produce radio under the distraction of singing pirates; and for Radio Netherlands Worldwide in Hilversum, Holland – the highest point in the lowlands, where white cows grazed just outside the office windows.
As a Fulbright grant recipient, she worked with the English Section of Polish Radio’s External Service as a consulting editor, trainer and contributing producer in a building rumored to be a former Communist prison, with disturbingly thick sound-proofed walls as testament. She’s reported from Poland for a variety of programs and networks abroad, including NPR and “This American Life.” She’s also produced Polish language work for Polish Radio’s award-winning Features and Documentary section (Studio Reportażu i Dokumentu).
Amy also produces all kinds of multimedia work, including audio portraits for photo exhibitions, web-based virtual walks, and on-the-spot audio tours.
Amy’s audio work has been adapted for the stage and screen. She’s won an array of awards for her radio pieces, including a Third Coast International Audio Festival Award, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and broadcasting’s top honor, a Peabody.
