Devin Katayama hosts The Bay. He joined KQED in 2015 covering the East Bay. He previously co-hosted American Suburb, a podcast about the flip side of gentrification. Devin has worked in radio in Louisville, Chicago and Portland, Ore. His favorite part of the job is recording outside the studio. Devin thinks equally about the past and the future; less about the present. His current favorite mood is to chill. @radiodevin
Ericka Cruz Guevarra is a producer for The Bay at KQED. She worked as a breaking news reporter at Oregon Public Broadcasting where her coverage included stories about the state's growing demand for ethnic grocery stores and how police became de facto first responders to people experiencing mental health crises. One of her favorite pieces of advice about journalism is to always try and run the opposite direction of other journalists when covering a story. Ericka was born and raised and educated in the Yay. @NotoriousECG
Alan Montecillo is editor of The Bay. He came to KQED from Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, where he was the senior producer of a daily statewide news show called The 21st. He was also the founding producer and editor of Racist Sandwich, a podcast about food, race, class, and gender. Over the years, he's narrowed down his answer to the question "Where are you from?" to "a Filipino-American from Hong Kong, with some time in Portland." You can tweet at him about local news, basketball, and Cantonese food. @alanmontecillo
