HOST & PRODUCER
Only the radio could play Natalie Mendenhall, and she uses the medium to her benefit. She came into her role as a Senior Producer on "Political Rewind" as all eyes were on Georgia's highly contested 2022 midterm elections.
Aside from politics, Natalie also reports on important history in the diverse communities across Georgia. Her story "Remember Igbo Landing" focused on enslaved people rebelling on Georgia's shores in 1803. She also interviewed civil rights legends about their work in Atlanta and how they created a network of cars that they called Uber before Uber.
Before coming to Georgia Public Broadcasting, Natalie graduated from Wellesley College. The Chicago native went on to television and produced important stories ranging from recovery after Hurricane Irma to the Milwaukee Bucks winning a championship.
Chase McGee is a Gwinnett County native and graduate of the University of Georgia. He has previously worked on All Things Considered and On Second Thought with Georgia Public Broadcasting and African Perspectives with WUGA. He currently works as a producer with GPB's Political Rewind team.
Wednesday on Political Rewind: A record number of Georgians are already casting their ballots. This comes as President Biden says he'll prioritize codifying Roe v. Wade into law if Democrats take control of Congress. Meanwhile, Georgia's restrictive abortion law was a central theme in the debate for attorney general.
Thursday on Political Rewind: A Fulton County judge rules that state lawmakers can't avoid subpoenas in the special grand jury investigating the 2020 election. Plus, polls show Warnock over Walker by 10 points and a nearly tied gubernatorial race.
Wednesday on Political Rewind: Stacey Abrams' three endorsed candidates win their runoffs. Plus, Trump-endorsed candidates lose races, a sign that state Republicans are moving away from the former president. Meanwhile, the Jan. 6 committee hearing featured compelling testimony from Georgians.
