Nathan Rott, Adjunct Faculty
Nathan Rott is a correspondent on National Public Radio’s National Desk, where he reports on the environment and breaking news. His work regularly appears on NPR’s news shows and podcasts, and ranges from field reports at the nation’s latest natural disaster to profiles of the lesser-known people maintaining our national parks.
Rott got his start in journalism as the first recipient of the Stone and Holt Weeks Fellowship, which brought him to The Washington Post and NPR.
A graduate of the University of Montana, Rott spent six seasons as a wildland firefighter in the northwest corner of the state. He’s also worked as a commercial fisherman, an emergency medical technician, a general assistant in Antarctica and – for a brief moment – as a traveling instructor/performer of children’s musical theater. Sadly, he still can’t sing.
