Bradley George

Reporter/Host

I was born and raised in North Carolina, but my career in public radio has taken me all over the Southeast: Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham. Along the way, I’ve reported for NPR, Here and Now, BBC, and The Takeaway. I’ve also done quite a few stories for Marketplace.

I pitched my first on a whim: it was about pecan farmers in Georgia who were trying to come up with a slogan for their crop (think “Beef: It’s What For Dinner,” but for pecans). That story piqued my interested in business reporting, and it’s one of the things that drew me to WUSF in 2019.

Since then, I’ve reported on seaports, airports, and Amazon’s expansion in Polk County. I’ve also covered the 2019 Women’s Final Four in Tampa and an Iowa Caucus in St. Petersburg.

When I’m not reporting, I’m up at 4 a.m. to bring you the latest news on Morning Edition. You heard that right: 4 a.m.! Thankfully I have a short commute to the station. I don’t mind the hours because I love helping WUSF listeners start their day. That includes my mom in North Carolina, who listens to the station on our app!

Outside work: I love to travel (two of my favorite destinations: Mexico City and Warsaw …hoping to visit South America next!). I also enjoy exploring the natural beauty of our state. I never thought I would end up in Florida, but it grows on you.
