Lauren Kirby

Freelance Reporter

Lauren is an independent multimedia producer living in Kansas City, Mo. 

Her love of radio began at The University of Kansas where she spent all of her free time working at the university station, KJHK. She holds a degree in Humanities & Western Civilization as well as a graduate certificate from The Salt Institute of Documentary Studies.  

Media production has allowed her to travel extensively, living for extended periods of time in California and Florida as part of long-term documentary projects. Most recently, she spent a year in India as the multimedia director of a nonprofit, crafting narrative pieces and producing media to advance the prevention of domestic violence. 

Her work has aired on The World from Public Radio International, Weekend America from American Public Media, Voice of America, Making Contact and various public radio programs in Seattle, Chicago, Maine, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
