Sam Houghton has been with the station since the summer of 2017. You might have recognized his voice as the host on Saturday's Weekend Edition. Sam grew up in Woods Hole before moving to New York City for a brief period to pursue journalism. He came back to the Cape when he got a job at his hometown newspaper, the Falmouth Enterprise where he covered local politics. Aside from his career in news, Sam plays bass for a revolving cast of rock bands, enjoys pickup basketball and rides the occasional wave in Rhode Island, and he just started a pollinator garden.
