Live from the hills of Westwood, the Daily Bruin presents its award-winning weekly news and culture talk show, Long Story Short. The show began airing in the winter of 2011 as a pre-recorded podcast with one broadcast host and single segment stories, eventually evolving into a live show broadcast from the UCLA Radio studio. The show covers all walks of life at UCLA, from science and health to arts and politics to local news and campus buzz. Long Story Short aims to focus on members of the UCLA community and their projects, personalities and perspectives.
In addition to being a Long Story Short host, Alex is a Daily Bruin sports writer. He covered the UCLA women's and men's track teams last year, and this year he is covering the women's and men's golf teams. He is an avid fan of sports radio and was inspired by various talk shows to join Long Story Short. He hopes to pursue a career in sports journalism or a career in the film industry as a writer or critic.
Chirag joined Daily Bruin Radio as a reporter in winter 2014, inspired after having grown up listening to legends like Garrison Keillor and the Magliozzi brothers.

Dariane Nabor, an avid consumer of podcasts, public radio and all things media, began as a radio reporter at the Daily Bruin in fall 2014. This is her first and last quarter as a host of Long Story Short.
