Welcome to Toucanradio. I am Sarah Elzas, radio producer and broadcast journalist. These days I report and present news and features msotly for the English service of Radio France International
As an independent radio producer, my work has aired in the US on The World
, Studio 360
and NPR's Justice Talking
, among others. In Europe my work has aired on Radio Netherlands
, RTE Radio
(Ireland), and on several other European radio services through Network Europe and the Euranet
partnership. I co-produced American Purgatory
a documentary about political asylum in the US, which aired on over 25 US public radio stations. I was a producer of Only in America
, a series on American Jewish History that aired in the US in 2007. I'm a member of AIR
, the Association of Independents in Radio.
For those of you who care about these kinds of things, I studied anthropology at Columbia University
and attended the radio program at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies
in Portland, Maine.
(at right, RIP) will forever be remembered as one of the best co-producers, ever.
I appreciate any and all feedback
about anything you hear or see on this site.
NOTE: My name is pronounced Sarah EL-zis.
