Anh Gray is Report for America's Audio Coach for a 10-newsroom pilot program supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. She's committed to working with early-career journalists on honing the craft of writing, producing, and voicing audio stories. Sounding like yourself on the radio takes some training and practice, and Anh has a helpful toolbox she's ready to share.
KUNR Public Radio in Reno, Nevada, is where Anh got her start in public media in 2014. She became the station's first public health beat reporter and editor. She has covered a variety of pressing public health issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Her feature about healthcare disparities for the LGBTQ+ community received a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award in hard news reporting, and she's been a two-time recipient of the Associated Press Television Radio Association (APTRA) best reporter recognition in her region.
Anh also works as a mentor for NPR's Next Generation Radio, a digital journalism and audio training project. She has graduate degrees from Boston University School of Public Health and Teachers College, Columbia University.
As a proud Vietnamese American, Anh is raising three children who constantly hound her for another bowl of phở. It's a dish that's more than soup; it's a warm expression of love. Her husband, two fur-babies, and a leopard gecko their son inherited also complete the family picture.
