Meet the Interns

Emily Colby - Access Utah Producer:

I am a junior at Utah State University majoring in International Studies and planning to minor in Environmental Studies and Journalism. I serve as the president of USU’s Interfaith Student Association. I grew up listening to NPR in the car with my mom, but had no radio experience before coming to UPR. Since joining the Access Utah team, I’ve fallen in love with public radio. I love learning about science, history, politics, and more every morning on Access Utah. I also host UPR’s Sunday afternoon programming. 

Kailey Foster - Agriculture Reporter: 

Born in Rhode Island, I moved to Utah to attend Utah State University to chase my dream of becoming a voice for the agriculture industry. Here at Utah State, I am pursuing degrees in Agricultural Communications, Broadcast Journalism and Political Science while also getting a minor in Agribusiness. I grew up in a dairy farming family and was very involved in 4-H and the New England Holstein Junior Association. Here in Utah I am just involved in learning about the agriculture community through my involvement in campus clubs such as Dairy Science Club and Agriculture Communicators of Tomorrow as well as with my title of 2020 Utah Miss Agriculture. Before I started working with UPR, I never thought I would go down the journalism rabbit hole, and now I can’t wait to see where it takes me.
