A Few Unforgettable Moments Heard On KUOW This Year

It’s been an incredible year for KUOW reporters.

Liz Jones traveled to India to report on the emerging tech world, John Ryan challenged politicians, Bill Radke discovered Seattle politeness is literally holding up traffic and Jeannie Yandel met a local surgeon who was the first to operate on a gorilla’s sinuses.

It was also a year of heartbreak: After a landslide thundered down on Oso, Washington, we set up a bureau in a nearby motel and returned six months later to see how survivors were coping in the aftermath. 

When shootings occurred at Seattle Pacific University and Marysville-Pilchuck High, our reporters were immediately on scene. 

To celebrate their hard work, we offer this (not-even-close-to-comprehensive) batch of memorable clips from stories produced at KUOW this year.

We hope it inspires you to listen to the remarkable stories you may have missed in 2014.
