Christin Kay

Arts and Culture Reporter

Christin Kay is passionate about the rich variety of arts, cultural experiences and stories in the Roaring Fork Valley. She has been a devotee of public radio her whole life.

 

Born in Denver, she attended Kansas State University as an undergraduate and Regis University for her masters degree in Education, Learning and Teaching. She was in the classroom for 14 years as an English teacher, working to show students that their voices mattered. A teaching opportunity at Aspen High School brought her to the Roaring Fork Valley for the first time in 2011. It was love at first sight, and she’s still in a bit of awe that she can call this place home.  

 

She came to Aspen Public Radio as a programming and content producer, planning community dialogues and town halls, and hosting and/or producing local shows Cross Currents, Mountain Edition and Valley Roundup. 

 

Christin refuels by skiing, biking, hiking and just breathing in the mountains. Her newest adventure is becoming a mom. She lives in Carbondale with her husband Jeremy, her son Weston and her dog Yalla. She loves to talk books and podcasts, so if you have a recommendation for her, let her know!   

Interesting stories, and how they are crafted, are at the heart of what Christin loves about public radio. A well-told story can inspire, open and connect like nothing else. She is honored to be a part of Aspen Public Radio and to have the opportunity to bring stories from the Roaring Fork Valley to life every day.

The Dial- May 9, 2017

Even though the section of the Roaring Fork river that flows through Aspen is rushing as snow melts in the high mountains, state and local officials say that low flows are a problem here.  Christin and Elizabeth Stewart-Severy discuss what this means and some creative solutions that might help keep the river healthy. 

Hosts Alycin Bektesh and Christin Kay talk with Minda Dentler. When she was an infant in India, she contracted polio, which left her legs paralyzed.  She was adopted into an American family.  Minda began competing in triathlons, using a handcycle and a racing wheelchair.  In 2013, she became the first official female handcyclist in history to complete an Ironman Championship.  She's also a passionate advocate for global immunization and polio eradication.
