Maxine SpeierHost, Morning Edition
As the Morning Edition Host for KUNC, it’s my job make sure KUNC’s listeners have all the news they need to start each day. Before coming to the Front Range, I was a reporter at Montana Public Radio and an editorial fellow covering wildfire and the environment for Pacific Standard magazine. I love keeping up with the top news stories going on in the world, finding how they relate to where we live, and helping listeners navigate the ever-changing news landscape.
I have a master’s degree in natural resource journalism from the University of Montana and a bachelor's in creative writing from Vassar College. When I’m not hosting and reporting, I’m either skiing, hiking with my not-so-well-behaved dogs, or lost in a book.
