Brian Grimmett

Reporter, Kansas News Service

I seek to find and tell interesting stories about how our environment shapes and impacts us. Climate change is a growing threat to all Kansans, both urban and rural, and I want to inform people about what they can expect, how it will change their daily lives and the ways in which people, corporations and governments are working to adapt. I also seek to hold utility companies accountable for their policy and ratemaking decisions. Email me at grimmett@kmuw.org.

I am a two-time Regional Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist covering energy and environment stories across the state of Kansas. I love to dive deep into complicated issues with the hope of making them easier to understand for general audiences, as with the award-winning hard news feature Westar Wants Kansans To Pay For Peak Power. What Could It Mean For Your Energy Bill?

Before coming to KMUW and the Kansas News Service, I worked at KUER 90.1-FM in Salt Lake City covering the Utah Legislature.

I earned his bachelor’s degree in communications from Brigham Young University.
