For more than 15 years, Liam Moriarty has covered environmental issues from timber, salmon, and whales to oil spills, land use, and global warming. He’s worked in multiple media - newspapers, magazines, public radio, and online – mostly in the Pacific Northwest.
Liam has also done reporting projects from Europe, including his recent five-part series, “Europe and Us; Growing a Green Future.” He’s currently the environmental reporter at KPLU-FM, a National Public Radio station in Seattle/Tacoma.
Liam’s memorable moment in public radio: “It’s probably a tie between getting tear-gassed during Seattle’s WTO riots in 1999, and getting upclose and personal with killer whales while reporting on whale research in the San Juans.”
Liam is an avid cyclist, sea kayaker, and martial artist.
