Desmond O'Boyle

Assistant News Director

Email: desmond.oboyle@kunc.org

As the All Things Considered Host for KUNC, it’s my job to personalize and localize NPR’s flagship afternoon news magazine program. When people in northern Colorado are listening, I want them to feel like I am sitting next to them, experiencing the same news and stories. I also take great pride in organizing and composing local material for our hourly newscasts.

Public radio is something special. The fact that most of the funding comes from small donations from the community is special to me. I grew up with public radio in our house, and the ability to provide that voice to our audience here in Northern Colorado is inspiring.

I grew up in Grand Junction on the Western Slope. I moved to Eugene, Oregon, where I graduated from the University of Oregon then I worked for KLCC for 4 years. In 2016, I relocated back to Colorado and started at KUNC. I have been living in Greeley ever since.

When I am not at work, I play bagpipes in Michael Collins Pipe Band in Denver. I also enjoy skiing, disc golf, camping and going to concerts.
