NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro has reported around the world for both the Associated Press and NPR. Her work includes reporting from Iraq before and during the US intervention in 2003 and covering the Arab Spring uprising in Libya in 2011.

Lulu recently became the new host of Weekend Edition Sunday, which can be heard from 8 to 10am on 89.1 WBOI.

WBOI’s Zach Bernard had an opportunity to speak with her about her reporting experiences, as well as her transition from the field to the booth. Their conversation began with a question on how she adapted to covering foreign countries.
