Stephen Koranda

Managing Editor, Kansas News Service

As the Kansas News Service managing editor, I help our statewide team of reporters find the important issues and breaking news that impact people statewide. We refine our daily stories to illustrate the issues and events that affect the health, well-being and economic stability of the people of Kansas.

I spent almost 15 years reporting on government and state legislatures in Mississippi and Kansas before becoming the Kansas News Service daily news editor in 2021. I was on the air in Kansas for a dozen years as the Kansas Public Radio Statehouse reporter.

Now I'm using that experience to help Kansas News Service reporters develop and refine their stories as they cover topics that impact the people of Kansas.

I'm a native of the Midwest with a degree from the University of Iowa. Email me at skoranda@kcur.org.
