J.C. Howard

Assistant Producer, TED Radio Hour and How I Built This

J.C. Howard is a producer for TED Radio Hour and How I Built This with Guy Raz. He started with NPR as an intern for How I Built This in May 2018 and began producing in his current capacity in January 2019.

Some of his favorite projects from his time at NPR include producing the stories of Jo Malone, Jamie Siminoff and Tristan Walker for How I Built This, and presenting ideas about climate change, belief and everyday racism for TED Radio Hour. Since July 2020, Howard has also served as an occasional panelist for Pop Culture Happy Hour, delivering takes and perspective on the copious amounts of TV and movies he already watches.

Before joining NPR, Howard was a freelancer whose projects included writing for the blog of NPR's Car Talk, and reporting and audio editing for member station KALW in San Francisco. Howard is a graduate of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program at KPFA.

Howard received a master's degree from Gonzaga University in communication and leadership. His interests include thinking deeply about shallow TV, and talking about being born and raised in Oakland, California.
