Frankie Barnhill is a general assignment reporter for Boise State Public Radio. She joined the newsroom fulltime in January, 2015.
She earned her production chops at American Public Media, where she interned for Marketplace Tech Report and American RadioWorks. Frankie was also a researcher in Minnesota Public Radio's newsroom for an investigative report on bullying.
As a freelance reporter in 2014, Frankie won a grant to profile five emerging artists for Boise State Public Radio's audience. The project, entitled "Artist Statement," was an exploration of Boise's burgeoning artistic scene.
Frankie was a fellow with the Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources in 2013 and again in 2015, where she began to hone her environmental reporting skills.
Frankie graduated from the College of St. Catherine with a degree in English literature. The Missoula native spends most of her free time riding her left-handed bike, quoting "30 Rock," and going to concerts.
