Krysta Scripter

Digital Services Assistant

Krysta Scripter started at KUNR in 2018. She graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno with a degree in journalism in 2017 and has interned for several news organizations including The Fresno Bee, Verily Magazine, Kolo8 News Now, Noticiero Movil and KUNR. She has also worked as a freelance photographer in Reno for three years.

Originally from Southern California, Krysta moved to Carson City with her family when she was 12 years old, and graduated from Carson High School in 2011. Her first taste of public radio was when she was selected for NPR’s Next Generation Radio Boot Camp at the Reynolds School of Journalism. Her first story was about a veteran staying at the Veteran’s Guest House while receiving chemotherapy treatment. Since then, she’s worked with KUNR and Noticiero Movil covering the 2016 elections and the Latino community in Reno.

When not working in journalism, or reading about journalism, Krysta spends her time with her fiance watching superhero movies and playing video games.
