Digital Content Coordinator

As Boise State Public Radio’s Digital Content Coordinator, Lacey implements the station’s comprehensive digital workflow, manages all BSPR social media accounts, and maintains the overall navigational design of the website. Some of her digital handiwork for the station has won her awards from RTDNA's Edward R. Murrow regional competition and the Idaho Press Club.

Prior to joining BSPR in August 2015, Lacey received her MFA in Fiction from Boise State. While getting her master’s, she also taught English and Creative Writing classes at BSU and served as Associate Editor for The Idaho Review.

Lacey grew up in Buffalo, New York, which makes her a Bills fan by default. In her free time she works as a Teaching-Writer at The Cabin: A Center for Readers & Writers in Boise. Her most recent project involves writing and producing audio essays. When not writing or working, you can find Lacey on a treadmill, in the garden, or taking care of her handsome pup.


If you’re waiting for Episode Five of the popular “Serial” podcast to drop today, you’ll have to keep waiting.

The spin-off  podcast from public radio’s “This American Life” has announced it will release the rest of its Season Two episodes on a bi-weekly basis. This is a departure from its original “one story told week-by-week” tagline.

Serial’s Season Two is focusing on the case of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a story that is still developing.

One of the emerging issues in the Treasure Valley over the last few years is the shrinking number of affordable housing units. As the housing market has improved and people continue to move to the area, rents have gone up and the number of available units has also declined. Our Adam Cotterell has been following the issue and he briefed All Things Considered host Samantha Wright on what many who deal with housing issues in the public, nonprofit and business sectors are calling a low-income housing crisis.

A big thank you goes out to Corner Bakery Cafe for hosting us, and to the listeners and members who attended. We heard tons of feedback on Morning Edition and other programming, recorded some listener testimonials and got to share the morning with many of our audience members.
