Kirsten Edmunds

News Reporter

Kirsten Edmunds is a student news reporter for Tri States Public Radio and an assistant in the AIS department. She is also an assistant news editor for the Western Courier newspaper. She is majoring in journalism and minoring in broadcasting at Western Illinois University.

Her passion for journalism started in high school when her English teacher handed her a notebook and said, “If you can’t talk about it, write about it.”

Kirsten enjoys asking a lot of questions, working out, hanging out with her friends, talking to her dad and eating cheese, lots of cheese.
