Environmental reporter Lana Cohen joins KZYX and The Mendocino Voice

Lana Cohen is our new environmental reporter, working for both KZYX and The Mendocino Voice, and recruited through Report for America, a national service program that places emerging journalists into local newsrooms across the country to report on under-covered issues. Her position is funded by KZYX, The Mendocino Voice, Report for America and a grant from the Community Foundation. We will also be fundraising throughout the year to support her work in Mendocino County.


Lana grew up in Brooklyn, NY and has a degree in environmental science from Colorado College in Colorado Springs CO.


In the coming year, you’ll hear Lana’s voice on our air and see her stories on kzyx.org and mendovoice.com. Here’s Lana in her own words, talking about her background, and why she’s chosen to pursue environmental journalism.
