Noah Glick is from the small town of Auburn, Indiana and comes to KUNR from the Bay Area, where he spent his post-college years learning to ride his bike up huge hills. He’s always had a love for radio, but his true passion for public radio began when he discovered KQED in San Francisco. Along with a drive to discover the truth and a degree in Journalism from Ball State University, he hopes to bring a fresh perspective to local news coverage.

When he’s not doing radio-related stuff, he’s probably doing crosswords, drinking coffee, playing guitar—or trying to do all three at once. He lives in Sparks with his brother, sister-in-law, two nephews and four animals.

More than 100 fires burned through the Tahoe basin and Truckee Meadows this year, including the recent Little Valley Fire.

But as Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports, a network of cameras is helping to reduce the impact and damage caused by these blazes.

As the Hot Pot Fire near Battle Mountain and Winnemucca gained momentum over the summer, crews were able to get much needed air resources because of video evidence showing a rapid growth of the blaze.

Voters have narrowly approved an initiative to tighten gun background checks in Nevada.

Supporters of the initiative, "Question 1" on the ballot, say they wanted to close what they call a loophole in current law by requiring background checks through a licensed gun dealer when most firearms change hands.

Jennifer Crowe is with Nevadans for Background Checks, the group that sponsored the measure. She says many criminals try to buy guns through private sales, often done online or at gun shows.

In addition, a 15 percent excise tax will be levied on wholesale marijuana sales, which will be used to pay for additional regulators and law enforcement, with the rest going to the State Distributive School Account.
