Josie Huang is an Immigration and Emerging Communities Reporter for KPCC. Prior to that, she produced and reported for the station's Take Two and The Madeleine Brand Show.
Huang came to KPCC from the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, where she was a reporter and co-host of the evening drive-time news show. Before that, she reported for the Portland (Me.)

Assignments have taken her to Central America’s largest dump, a coastal Mississippi town recovering from Hurricane Katrina and the US-Canada border, which American seniors were crossing to buy cheaper prescription drugs.
