Carrie HealyMorning Edition Host/Reporter
Carrie Healy hosts the local broadcast of Morning Edition at NEPM. She also hosts the station’s weekly government and politics segment Beacon Hill In 5 for broadcast radio and podcast syndication.
Carrie grew up on a working dairy farm, and continues to learn valuable life lessons from farming with her own family. As a kid, she was kept company by the radio in the barn, listening to Boston Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins games — and that is also where she was first heard on the radio in 1988.
Her family ties to western Massachusetts trace back to the 18th century, where generations of her ancestors built homes and livelihoods for their families. She fondly recalls her grandfather’s stories of electricity illuminating light bulbs in Ashfield for the first time, and being the designated horse-drawn carriage driver for the town doctor.
Carrie holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
