Who are you?
Hi. I’m Rae Hodge. I report on Kentucky politics. I’ve worked for public radio, the AP, the BBC, and a bunch of locals. I write, shoot photos, produce radio, broadcast video, and fumble with coding and data. On this site you can find my work for a variety of outlets across Kentucky. I’m antipartisan, a registered independent voter, and a Kentucky colonel.
Who do you work for?
Myself and my audience. Sometimes I freelance for Kentucky news outlets. I produce the KY120 Newscast on WFMP every week, and I’ve been volunteering my time lately with Code for Kentuckiana. I’m not paid by any politician, corporation, think tank, non-profit, activist group, or political cause. I started this site back in 2012 to keep track of my clips, and this is the latest iteration.
If you’re an editor in a pinch and you can’t afford to send a reporter to the Capitol, send me an email and tell me what I can do for you. I work on a sliding scale to help small-circulation papers: firstname.lastname@example.org
