Nick Fountain

Producer, Planet Money

Nick Fountain is a producer on Planet Money. Previously, he produced and directed NPR's Morning Edition. The hours were terrible, but the work was fun: He produced interviews with world leaders, witnesses to history, musicians, authors and directors. He also chose the music that went between stories, and directed the live show. In 2014, he traveled to Cuba to report on the changing economy. He once worked at WBUR Boston, KQED San Francisco, KUSP Santa Cruz, a DC farmers market, a fancy cabinet shop, and a baseball stadium. He's the reigning world champion of Belt Sander Racing. He tweets @nickfountain.
