Caroline Llanes


Caroline Llanes is a general assignment reporter at Aspen Public Radio, covering local news and City of Aspen-based issues. Previously, she was an associate producer for WBUR’s Morning Edition in Boston.

Llanes is no stranger to the Roaring Fork Valley; although she originally hails from San Diego, she grew up visiting the area annually during family ski vacations. She fell in love with journalism while studying history at the University of Michigan; Llanes was a public media intern at Michigan Radio, and also served as a copy editor and columnist at The Michigan Daily.

When she’s not at work, she enjoys hiking, the Detroit Red Wings, making homemade pizza dough, and skiing of both the downhill and Nordic varieties. She lives in Carbondale with her tuxedo cat, Pepper.
