Colorado College’s NPR-member public radio station, 91.5 KRCC, has a new Morning Edition host and newsroom reporter - Abigail Beckman. A Colorado native, Beckman returns to her home state after working at KMUW, the public radio station in Wichita.
“The opportunity to have a job I love in my home state feels like a dream come true,” said Beckman. “Kansas has been my home for the past 10 years and it has a special place in my heart, but the mountains will always be where I belong.”
Beckman has an impressive resume, with appearances on NPR’s “Weekend Edition Sunday,” “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.” She earned a regional Edward R. Murrow Award as well as the Gracie Award from the Alliance for Women in Media for her role as a producer on the radio documentary, “The Pieces that Remain: Remembering the Wichita State University Plane Crash.”
You can listen to Beckman on Morning Edition on KRCC from 5-9 a.m., Monday through Friday.
