WFAE adds climate beat

July 9. David Boraks will take on the role of climate reporter at WFAE as the station expands its coverage of climate change thanks to a grant from the Salamander and 1Earth funds.

Issues that will be covered include:

—Coastal erosion and sea level rise

—Flooding from more frequent and intense storms

—The drive for more renewable energy

“Climate is one of the big stories of our time. Scientists have said we are living in a ‘climate emergency,’ and yet many people are not clear on what that means or what can be done,” said Ju-Don Marshall, WFAE’s executive vice president and chief content officer.

Boraks is a veteran journalist who has covered environmental stories for WFAE since 2015. From 2006 to 2015, he published the online community news network DavidsonNews.net and CorneliusNews.net. Boraks has been an editor reporter at The Charlotte Observer, American Banker, The China News in Taipei and others.
