Wildfires, wolves and the watchdog: Eve Byron on 20 years in Montana journalism
Reporter Eve Byron has been a force at the Helena Independent Record for decades.
Starting out covering local government, Byron moved to being a journalistic authority on wildlife and natural resource issues in Montana.
After 20 years and about 15,000 stories, Byron left the Independent Record last Friday.
She’s starting a new job as a communications specialist for the Helena-based non-profit National Institute on Money in State Politics.
In this feature interview, Byron speaks with Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce about a life in Montana journalism and the changing nature of the industry.
