I’m a journalist based in Kodiak, Alaska, where I’m currently the news director at KMXT, and a frequent contributor to Alaska Public Media. I was the former arts and culture reporter at Aspen Public Radio. I came from print before I discovered the magic of radio, and also have in-house editorial experience as the former digital editor of Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine. As a freelancer, I’ve been published in 5280 Magazine, Elevation Outdoors, Forbes Travel Guide, Backpacker Magazine, and Aspen Sojourner.

Before I decided to get serious (sort of) and pursue journalism full-time, I lived in New Zealand and backpacked through Southeast Asia. In a former life, I was the Silverton Alpine Marathon’s first female finisher in 2014 (seriously, I have the trophy to prove it), but now I prefer racing my dogs around the trails near my house.

I don’t keep this site current, but if you’d like to hear more about my work or you’re interested in discussing a potential freelance project, feel free to send me a note at kirstendobroth@gmail.com.
