Meet Mitch Borden, our new Midland/Odessa reporter!

Mitch first picked up a microphone as a radio producer in Nome, Alaska. There he did everything from covering the Iditarod to hosting the morning music show. After his time in the north, he was hooked on radio. So, he attended the Transom Story Workshop to hone his skills and then returned to the 49th state to work as a reporter in Kodiak and Bristol Bay.

Originally from Michigan, Mitch is excited to move to West Texas and join Marfa Public Radio’s news team as its Midland reporter. When he’s not covering the news you’ll probably find him wandering around with his camera and a cup of coffee.

On a special version of West Texas Talk, we hear more excerpts from the. Marfa version of ‘Ads.’ In 2010, playwright and director Richard Maxwell started Ads, a play that features pre-recorded monologues of strangers —not actors— expressing what they believe. .
