StateImpact Adds New Education Reporter
StateImpact Oklahoma, a collaboration of NPR member stations in Oklahoma, has added a new reporter to their team.
Robby Korth joined StateImpact in October and will be focusing on education issues. He is an Oklahoma and Arkansas native, growing up in Ardmore and Fayetteville. After graduating from the University of Nebraska with a Journalism degree, Robby reported for several newspapers, most recently covering higher education and other topics for The Roanoke Times in southwest Virginia.
In 2018, he co-created the podcast Septic, spending a year reporting on the story of a missing five-year-old boy, the discovery of his body in a septic tank a few days after his disappearance, and the subsequent court trial of his mother. Although the story was of particular interest to residents in Virginia, the podcast gained a larger audience and was named as a New and Noteworthy podcast by Apple Podcasts.
We hope you'll join us in welcoming Robby to the StateImpact Oklahoma team.
