Robyn Vincent

Reporter, Mountain West News Bureau

Email: robyn.vincent@kunc.org

I am KUNC's Mountain West News Bureau reporter. I'm interested in our region's appetite and aversion to equity, whether that's in housing, healthcare, education, politics or policy.

I have worked as a reporter and editor mining stories at the intersection of the New and Old West for the last decade.

Before joining KUNC as its Mountain West News Bureau reporter, I built and launched the first news department at Jackson Hole Community Radio.

I also am the former editor of Wyoming’s only alternative press: the now-defunct Planet Jackson Hole. I led that paper to win its first national award for a series I directed on the narratives of forcibly displaced people.

It traced one reporter’s tumultuous experience living and working with Syrian refugees on the Greek island of Lesvos. That work—published in the only state that lacks a refugee resettlement program—typifies my favorite kind of journalism: that which dispels notions of “the other” and elevates marginalized voices.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in print and online journalism and belong to Investigative Reporters and Editors, Ida B. Wells Society, and the Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association.

When I'm not sweating deadlines, I like to get lost in the mountains, near and far, and wax philosophical with strangers.
