Ellie Katz

Environment Reporter

Ellie Katz joined IPR in June 2023. She reports on science, conservation, and the environment.

She's had previous stints at Heritage Radio Network, FRQNCY Media, Stitcher and Michigan Radio. She's reported on Detroit's roller derby league, dining in the metaverse, knights' training for the restaurant chain Medieval Times, and more. She also co-wrote season three of the climate change podcast A Matter of Degrees -- she's thrilled to continue similar work at IPR reporting on science, conservation and the environment.

Ellie first visited Interlochen as a middle school camper shortly after moving to Michigan. She's happy to have considered the state home ever since, and even happier to be back at Interlochen.
