Abigail Censky

Politics & Government Reporter

It’s my job to explain statewide politics to our audience with clarity and context. Sometimes that means tracking developments in the Legislature and shining light on things that alter the laws, the taxes and the services of state government. Other times it means traveling throughout the state to amplify the voices and stories of Kansans. And, critically, I strive to hold our public officials accountable. You can reach me at abigailcensky@kcur.org.

I have covered politics across the Midwest for NPR and its member stations. I'm interested in covering the growing pains as political outsiders becoming political insiders, and how policy impacts everyday life for Kansans. My work aims to open the often-exclusive world of politics to anyone.

Before coming to Kansas, I was named a public radio rising star and one of the top statewide political reporters in Michigan by the Washington Post.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Southwest Studies from Colorado College.
