Hi, I’m Tarryn. 


 I’ve covered immigration in the Dominican Republic, veterans’ issues in Arizona and the safety of imported food in Guatemala

I was most recently the multimedia producer at MetroFocus, the nightly news magazine show on New York City’s PBS station.

Prior to joining MetroFocus, I covered local government for web, radio and TV as metro reporter for KPBS News, the San Diego NPR and PBS affiliate.

I was also a Pulliam Fellow at The Arizona Republic and a video journalist for the national campaign “Face the Facts USA.” 

I earned my master’s degree from the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University. There I was selected as a Carnegie-Knight News 21 Fellow. My reporting on the dangers of imported produce was part of a project recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists. I was also part of the Cronkite Borderlands Initiative that took me inside maternity wards in Santo Domingo. The project received the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award.

I completed my undergraduate education at the University at Albany and was an intern at the Albany Times Union. 

I grew up in Syracuse, N.Y.
