Desmond O'Boyle

I was born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado. We didn’t have a television in our house as a family, and I grew up listening to Prairie Home Companion and Car Talk. I started working in college radio at KMSA hosting a heavy metal program when I was 18. After earning my Associates at Mesa State, I relocated to the Pacific Northwest, and continued my education at the University of Oregon. (Go Ducks!) I earned my B.S. in Journalism in 2011.

I started interning at KLCC in Eugene in 2011, and worked there for five years as a Weekend Edition / All Things Considered Host and reporter.  I chose to re-locate to Colorado June, 2016 to be closer to my family. I started at KUNC in September, 2016. It is my goal to deliver solid, objective journalism to the people of Northern Colorado through my local reporting and NPR.

I also enjoy camping, skiing, and disc golf. I’ve been playing the Great Highland Bagpipe since I was 12.
