Miguel Perez is an arts reporter and digital producer for Art&Seek.
Before he joined KERA’s arts and culture team, Miguel was helping put together newscasts as an assistant producer for the station’s local Morning Edition broadcast. During that time, he also reported on everything from the high-stakes cooking contests at the State Fair of Texas to the story of one of Dallas’s most endangered neighborhoods.
Miguel got his start in public radio in 2017 as an intern for Art&Seek. He’s also interned for NPR’s All Things Considered and The Dallas Morning News. His love affair with arts journalism began at the University of Texas at Dallas, where he covered the arts for the student newspaper.
Miguel has a cat named Karen, and his favorite podcast at the moment is Dolly Parton’s America.
