Will Stone grew up with the sounds of public radio. As an intern, his first story had him combing Long Island Sound for horseshoe crabs and interviewing beachgoers. After that, he was hooked on radio and the magic of telling stories through sound. He has since reported for NPR member stations in Nevada and Connecticut. He joined the KJZZ newsroom in March 2015 as a Senior Field Correspondent.

Stone considers himself a passionate generalist and will jump on any story that gets him out into the field with a microphone in hand. During his time in Nevada, he covered local politics, the changing face of rural communities and Reno’s effort to reinvent its economy after the recession. Stone’s stories have also aired on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Those pieces have touched on myriad issues — school shootings, the business of drones, Burning Man and surfers in the Sierra Nevada.

Before moving West, Stone received his degree in English literature from Haverford College and covered the local arts and culture scene in Philadelphia. He also interned at the NPR headquarters in Los Angeles where he learned from some of the network’s veteran reporters and editors.

When he is not reporting or listening to public radio, Stone enjoys running, climbing mountains and exploring the local food scene.
