Paris Alston, co-host of GBH’s “Morning Edition,” was recently named a recipient of the 2024 Black Excellence on the Hill Award. This award, issued by the Massachusetts Black & Latino Legislative Caucus, commemorates Black and Latino Community leaders and trailblazers who are moving the needle forward in cities and towns across the Commonwealth. Along with her Morning Edition work Ms. Alston produces The Wake-Up podcast at GBH News, and also does original, community-based reporting for her series, “A Walk Down the Block.”

Prior to that, she worked as a producer for WBUR’s daily news magazine, Radio Boston. Her storytelling interests surround identity, community and culture, and she has covered stories in Southeast Asia, Morocco, Panama and Brazil. A North Carolina native, Paris graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and will graduate this year with a Social Impact MBA from Boston University.
