Jackie Sedley

Jackie Sedley covers all things environment and climate for KGNU in Boulder, CO. Before moving to Mountain Time, she lived in sunny California working as the Internal News Director for KCSB-FM in Santa Barbara. Her journalism career thus far has also included freelancing for the New York Times, fill-in producing and freelance reporting for KCRW and working as Editor-in-Chief for her community college newspaper. Sedley was introduced to journalism during her sophomore year of high school, when she joined her high school newspaper as a novice staff writer. After working her way up to News Editor and eventually Editor-in-Chief, she realized her thirst for reporting was truly unquenchable. Over the past 10 years Sedley has covered raging fires, housing crises, local elections, protests and more. Journalism is both the reason Jackie Sedley wakes up in the morning, and the reason she does not sleep enough at night.


KGNU broadcasts a mix of local, state, national and world news, philosophical and cultural programs, and eclectic music. In order to achieve our mission to amplify underserved voices through the production of diverse programs, KGNU works through a participatory media lens, inviting and training others to join the mission. Four years ago we launched an equity reporting initiative and a broader media training program to prioritize local reporting in Boulder County. KGNU serves Boulder, Denver and much of the northern Front Range of Colorado.
