Eve Zuckoff is WCAI's Report for America reporter, covering the environment and the human impacts of climate change.  

Her beat centers not only around the challenges climate change poses to Cape Cod communities, but on the solutions and innovations that individuals and organizations seek to implement.   

Eve came to WCAI from WBUR, where she worked on Radio Boston, a daily news magazine program and "Last Seen," an investigative podcast that looked into the 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist.

As a lifelong Massachusetts resident, she loves covering the community she grew up in and snacking on the world's best seafood along the way.
