Erik Adams


Erik began his role as NSPR's Butte County government reporter in September of 2023 as part of UC Berkeley's California Local News Fellowship. He received his bachelor's degree in Journalism from Cal State LA earlier that year.

Erik is a Southern California native who began his
journalism career while taking classes at a community college. Being undeclared for several semesters, he joined his school's newspaper staff and quickly realized the path he wanted to follow.

Since then, he has contributed to Cal State LA's student-run newspaper, The University Times, KnockLA, EdSource and several other Southern California media outlets. One reason Erik loves radio, especially public radio, is because he sees it as one of the last vessels of collective experience in the age of on-demand media.
