WABE People

Patrick Saunders

How many years have you been in Atlanta?


Why is the work WABE does in amplifying Atlanta vital to our communities?

“Because fact-based local journalism is needed now more than ever. WABE cuts through the noise and delivers for its city.”

What’s your favorite part about being a part of the WABE team?

“There’s a real commitment across the board to telling all of Atlanta’s stories in the city I was born and raised in. It’s a true honor to work alongside colleagues that are so passionate about that.”

What makes Atlanta “Atlanta”? What makes the Greater Metro area special?

“Its diversity, its food, its music, its place in the Civil Rights Movement, its challenges, its resiliency, its influence and all the people that wake up here every day to make it as special as it is. Atlanta is the greatest city in the world.”
