Adelina Lancianese

Adelina Lancianese is the lead producer for the NPR podcast Rough Translation.

Most recently, she helped produce investigative podcast On Our Watch, a collaboration between NPR and Member station KQED. Lancianese was also an associate producer in Content Development, where she worked primarily on long-form projects, and organized the annual Story Lab Workshop for the development of new independent and Member station podcasts.

She served as a producer for NPR Music's investigative podcast Louder Than A Riot, about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. In 2019, she produced NPR's I'll Be Seeing You, a series of one-hour radio specials that explored the technologies that watch us.

Lancianese came to NPR as a 2017 Kroc Fellow. During the fellowship, she helped produce an investigation into black lung disease among coal miners, which won an Edward R. Murrow Award and was nominated for both a Peabody and Emmy. Lancianese also reported for Pittsburgh Member station 90.5 WESA and produced for NPR's Weekend Edition.

She is a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, where she served as a researcher for the StoryCorps-affiliated American Pilgrimage Project, and is a former contributor at the Beckley Register-Herald newspaper in her home state of West Virginia.
