Anh Gray is a health reporter for the KUNR news team. She joined the station in 2014 as a producer. She has graduate degrees in public health from Boston University and in education degree from Teachers College, Columbia University.
In 2017, Anh received an award from the Associated Press Television Radio Association (APTRA) for best reporter. That year, Anh covered a variety of pressing public health issues like health care reform, the opioid epidemic and disease outbreaks. Other APTRA honors in the last several years include first place for spot news for her production of an anti-campus gun carry protest and second place for best public service reporting on her coverage of the opioid epidemic. Anh was also a contributing reporter for two series that won regional Edward R. Murrow awards: one on electric car maker, Tesla, and another on the impact of legalizing recreational marijuana in Nevada.
In 2018, Anh was chosen to participate in the National Press Foundation Innovations in Public Health Fellowship. The International Center For Journalists-United Nations Foundation selected Anh in 2016 for a fellowship focusing on sustainable development issues. She attended the UN General Assembly and met with experts. As a result of this experience, Anh produced several stories covering access to health care for Syrian refugees in Northern Nevada, the lack of Native American doctors in the region and the rising concern of antimicrobial resistance.
Health policy, access to health care, and community health issues are Anh’s primary interests. She also enjoys covering innovations in the prevention of disease and the promotion of wellness. Those stories include nutrition, evidence-based health initiatives and medical breakthroughs.
Her home life is filled with the mayhem and laughter of three children, who also happen to be huge public radio fans. When not chasing after her next radio story, Anh enjoys spending time with her family hiking along the scenic trails around Lake Tahoe or taking off on weekned road trips.
