About Len…

I’m Len Wilcox – a freelance journalist who provides a weekly commentary called The Western View. It’s been a regular feature on AgNet West’s Farm City Newsday radio and online programming for more than 5 years.

I’ve also been a newspaper reporter, editor, and freelance journalist since the 1980’s.  I owned and edited a weekly newspaper in Madera County, California, and later worked as a reporter and editor at a daily newspaper before moving on to magazines.

Another favorite journalistic pursuit:  I wrote and photographed for Desert USA and other nature or travel publications, and authored a travel journal about the California deserts published by Hunter in 2000. And, just to round out the resume’, I was once a scientist with the the state of California, and a technician in the US Air Force.

My wife Lynda and I love to travel, and to learn all about the places we’ve been. Come along for the ride! Either by subscribing to the podcast or these pages, you’re welcome to go Looking for Shiprock with us.
