GRANGEVILLE Free Press readers may notice a couple of new names from time to time in the pages of Idaho County’s oldest newspaper.
University of Idaho students Taylor Nadauld and Nishant Mohan will both contribute to the paper as legislative interns this year.
Nadauld is studying journalism and political science at the University of Idaho and will be graduating in the fall. She is currently working as a news reporter intern sponsored by the McClure Center and the U of I School of Journalism and Mass Media to cover the 2016 Idaho Legislature.
She was born and raised in Idaho Falls. She moved to Coeur d’Alene to study journalism at North Idaho College in 2014, where she worked as lead reporter for the Sentinel and earned her associate degree in journalism in 2015. She transferred to the University of Idaho in Moscow where she was a reporter for The Argonaut.
Nadauld will also be reporting for Bonner County Daily Bee, The Owyhee Avalanche and The Power County Press, The Aberdeen Times, and Idaho Public Radio. Find her on Twitter @tnadauldarg.
Mohan will be reporting from the State Capitol for the Free Press as well as four other papers around the state including The Power County Press, The Aberdeen Times, Bonner County Daily Bee and The Owyhee Avalanche. His reporting is sponsored through an internship with the University of Idaho McClure Center for Public Policy Research.
“I look forward to covering the legislature for a diverse group of audiences,” he said. “I can’t wait to get to know different Idahoans I am not currently familiar with.”
Mohan is a sophomore studying journalism at the University of Idaho’s School of Journalism and Mass Media. He wrote for the student newspaper, The Argonaut, where he first developed his passion for journalism. His work also appears at Idaho Public Radio, the journalism school’s news outlet. He grew up in Boise where he planned to go into a STEM field before “accidentally” finding his interest in journalism.
