Radio journalist Matt Brooke completes Bexley assignment and returns to Guatemala City

Monday June 2, 2008. Journalist Matthew Brooke completed his last assignment as guest host of The Joe Contino Show on WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM. Brooke is a journalist and translator for InforPress Central America Report.

Brooke worked for the radio station as a journalist and program host during April and May.

Brooke was in Columbus, Ohio undergoing a regimen of specialized physical therapy at The Ohio State University Medical Center following a motor vehicle accident while on journalistic assignment in Honduras.

Brooke's last show was an extended interview of Timothy Nassau a recent graduate of Bexley High School. Nassau graduated summa cum laude and is one of two Bexley graduates who will attend Brown University in the coming autumn.

During his tenure with WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM, Brooke reported on progressive issues such as predatory lending, sub-prime mortgages and inner-city mortgage foreclosures. He reported on these issues from Cleveland, Ohio an area particularly impacted by economic conditions and mortgage foreclosures.

Brooke's hard-hitting reporting on these issues gave WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM listeners the critical insight necessary to understand the several federal and Ohio legislative proposals addressing these important issues.

Brooke has returned to Guatemala City and resumed his usual work for InforPress Central America Report. The Central America Report provides strategic intelligence on Central America and also does special investigations on issues such as the Guatemala: peace process and agrarian land reform.

Before his last assignment, WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM requested that Brooke join its stable of culture correspondents and that he file quarterly or monthly culture dispatches from central America recounting local events that will be of interest to the Bexley radio audience.

Currrently, WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM has culture correspondents reporting from Homer Alaska, Portsmouth New Hampshire, Huntington West Virginia and Golden Colorado. The culture correspondents keep Bexley residents informed of interesting and unusual events in those distant locales.

The WCRX-LP, 102.1 FM audience benefited by the intrepid reporting of Matthew Brooke. The staff, management and WCRX-
LP editorial collective of Bexley Public Radio Foundation appreciate the opportunity to work with an experienced professional like Matt Brooke.
