Miranda Suarez is KERA’s Fort Worth reporter.
Before coming to North Texas, she was the Lee Ester News Fellow at Wisconsin Public Radio, where she covered statewide general assignment news, including election security and politics, as well as local police and military issues in the city of Madison.
Originally from Massachusetts, Miranda started her journalism career at WTBU, Boston University’s student radio station. Her first public radio jobs were at WBUR, where she was a newscast intern and later a fellow on the business desk. During an internship at Boston 25 News, she conducted an investigation into mental health counseling services at Massachusetts colleges and universities that was nominated for a 2019 New England Emmy.
Miranda is always looking for stories of the weird and wonderful -- whether it’s following a robot around a grocery store or sampling cheeses at a Wisconsin cheese contest. Outside of journalism, she loves reading, road trips and Dungeons & Dragons.
