Robyn Vincent

Executive Newsroom Producer, Editor, Reporter

Email: robyn.vincent@kunc.org

I wear many hats in KUNC's newsroom as an executive producer, editor and reporter. My work focuses on inequality, the systems of power that entrench it, and the people who are disproportionately affected. I help reporters in my newsroom to also uncover these angles and elevate unheard voices in the process.

I have worked as a reporter and editor mining stories at the intersection of the New and Old West for more than a decade. Before joining KUNC, 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.”

I hold a bachelor’s degree in print and online journalism from Wayne State University in Detroit 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.
