Caroline Llanes


Caroline Llanes is a general assignment reporter at Aspen Public Radio, covering everything from local governments to public lands. Her work has been featured on NPR. Previously, she was an associate producer for WBUR’s Morning Edition in Boston.

Originally from San Diego, Llanes got her start in public radio as newsroom intern for Michigan Radio, where she covered COVID-19, PFAS contamination, the Great Lakes, among a variety of other issues. She got her degree in history at the University of Michigan 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, Michigan football, making homemade pizza dough, and, of course, skiing. She lives in Glenwood Springs with her partner and their tuxedo cat, Pepper, and cockapoo, Poppy.
