Production Assistant, All Things Considered

Ashish Valentine joined NPR as its second-ever Reflect America fellow and is now a production assistant at All Things Considered. As well as producing the daily show and sometimes reporting stories himself, his job is to help the network's coverage better represent the perspectives of marginalized communities.

Valentine was born in Mumbai, India, and immigrated to the United States as a child. Before working in public media, he spent two years in northern France teaching high school English. He joined NPR from Chicago member station WBEZ, where he produced two daily news shows and worked on an award-winning joint WBEZ-City Bureau series investigating racialized disparities in home mortgage lending in Chicago.

Valentine speaks fluent French and is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he studied English Literature.
