Halle Zander


Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Halle grew up among the Appalachian mountains and Magnolia trees that are endemic to life in the South. With a passion for protecting the environment, she traveled to California to study Environmental Analysis at Pitzer College, soon realizing that journalism was one of the most powerful ways she could support the land and her community.

Following her passion for the alpine, Halle moved to Colorado five years ago. Before starting at Aspen Public Radio, she was an environmental educator with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. Her love of teaching and storytelling launched her into a position with the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment program where she taught youth radio and managed a weekly public affairs show. She began freelancing for KDNK in September of 2020 and Aspen Public Radio in June of 2021, covering news across the Roaring Fork Valley.
