Afternoon News Host
Devin first came to Capital Public Radio in 2005 as an intern with a passion for music, but no broadcasting ambitions. She just wanted to be around all the great CDs in the library! Now, as CapRadio's Afternoon News Host, she can’t imagine life without broadcasting. She has moonlighted as an all-around sub on multiple Capital Public Radio shows, including Morning Edition and Blue Dog Jam. She also hosted regular shifts of classical music and Excellence In Jazz, and from 2009 to 2012, hosted and produced Classic Jazz & Swing.
When not behind the mic, you can find Devin catching up on her favorite crime dramas, reading a baseball book, or rooting for the San Francisco Giants.
