As I work towards becoming a science journalist in the US, I kept establishing relationships with editors in the science and environment beats in Dominican media outlets. This is when I start working with Diario Libre’s Multimedia Editor Marvin del Cid. And, for the first time, I pithed and published an enterprise story on endemic monkey fossils from the Hispaniola.
This piece led me to a new science story, assigned by Del Cid, about a newly described wasp from the Caribbean region. Here are the posts on Diario Libre’s website:
- Diario Libre, Environment: Hallan fósil de mono extinto en Parque Nacional Jaragua.
- Diario Libre, Environment: República Dominicana deslumbra con “La luz brillante”.
Editor’s Note: This post has been updated in March, 2017, to add the daybook story shared with broadcast station in La Vega, Dominican Republic.
I also kept working with my former boss, Radio Santa María’s Programming Director Reagan Liriano, and shared this audio piece on the March for Science in New York City. It was played during the morning newscast the next day.
