About

I’m a  reporter at WPLN News, Nashville Public Radio. I cover the music industry, arts and culture, and am especially interested in monuments, gun culture,  and holding institutions accountable when it comes to access and equity. If you have story ideas or tips, you can reach me at PaigeP@WPLN.org

Before moving to Middle Tennessee, I covered public health and criminal justice in Ohio, and was awarded Ohio’s Associated Press Reporter of the Year in 2019.  In 2020 my coverage of Columbus Police was awarded best investigative reporting by Ohio’s Associated Press. 

I have worked in the newsrooms of NPR, Vox, Michigan Radio, WHYY and The Tennessean, and my work has appeared nationally in The Washington Post, Marketplace, PRI’s The World, USA Today and more.
