    Robin Epley

  • Editor

    I have extensive editing experience in newspaper, magazine, opinion and feature journalism -- as well as in audio production.

    Journalist

    As a working journalist for more than a decade, my work has appeared in numerous national and local outlets, including the Chico Enterprise-Record, Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Magazine, the Chico News & review, the Sacramento News & review, SacTown magazine, Comstock's magazine, Bustle.com, TechWire.net, and many more.

    Advocate

    Good journalism thrives in a community that supports its own, and I'm proud to have served as a board member for not one, not two, but three local journalism organizations. I just recently resigned from the board of directors for The Sacramento Press Club and the Sacramento chapter of the Online News Association, and I am the founder of Millennials in Media, Sacramento's only networking and mentorship program for young journalists.

    Audio

    Raised on public radio, I have long had a fascination with working as an on-air journalist. Even though I was born with a severe speech impediment, I worked hard to overcome it through more than a decade of training. I now have a monthly podcast, been involved in voice work, and also worked as a reporter and weekend anchor for Sacramento's news radio station, KFBK.
