89.3 WFPL News Announces New Full-Time Arts & Culture Reporter

89.3 WFPL News has hired a full-time reporter to cover arts and culture in Louisville and across the state.

Ashlie Stevens is a Louisville-based journalist whose work has focused on art, food and drink, and urban preservation. A former WFPL intern and current contributor, she has also been published in The Atlantic, National Geographic, Slate and The Guardian, among others.

Stevens started full-time at WFPL this week.

“I'm so excited to be joining the WFPL newsroom,” she said. “Louisville has such a rich and vibrant arts community, and I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to cover it."

For more than a year, Tara Anderson has served as WFPL’s arts and culture correspondent in a part-time capacity. She will move to a new role at the station, producing long-form feature reporting and piloting a new podcast whose details will be announced soon.

"I have loved my time reporting on Louisville's amazing arts scene, and I'm so happy that I get to continue exploring this city and its people through my work with WFPL,” Anderson said.

Stevens’ hiring marks an expansion of WFPL’s arts and culture coverage.

“Ashlie has a skill for finding unexpected angles, and her thoughtful reporting, analysis and criticism are great additions to WFPL,” said Stephen George, executive editor of Louisville Public Media. “And Tara is such a terrific journalist and interviewer -- I can’t wait for her new project to debut.”
