Jonaki Mehta

Producer, All Things Considered

Jonaki Mehta is a producer for All Things Considered. Before ATC, she worked at Neon Hum Media where she produced a documentary series and talk show. Prior to that, Mehta was a producer at Member station KPCC and director/associate producer at Marketplace Morning Report, where she helped shape the morning's business news.

Outside of work, she loves making recipes with harvests from her vegetable garden and riding her motorcycle around L.A.
