April Ehrlich began freelancing for Jefferson Public Radio in the fall of 2016, and then officially joined the team as its Morning Edition Host and a Jefferson Exchange producer in August 2017.
She previously worked as a reporter for the Roseburg News-Review, where she covered city government and housing. Before that, she covered the oil and gas industry and local government on the Oregon-Idaho border.
April served a two-year stint with AmeriCorps, where she worked with nonprofits helping low-income communities in rural Oregon. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English at Cal-State University, Fullerton, where she worked as an editor for the campus paper.
When she is not at work or napping between shifts, April is likely hiking through nearby forests with a rambunctious border collie, or reading fiction at home with her two favorite cats.
