Paige Browning

Correspondent, Spokane Public Radio

A native of Spokane, and graduate of Lewis and Clark High School, Paige first worked in radio as a DJ at her college radio station, KBGA-Missoula, where she quickly jumped into reporting and anchoring news. While her interest in radio as a public service runs deep, she also brings experience in producing and directing documentary films and TV magazine shows. Paige and her classmates completed four shows for Montana PBS as students at the University of Montana, two of which were nominees for a Northwest Academy of Arts and Sciences student Emmy award. After graduating, Paige traveled as a Collegiate Development Consultant for a women’s leadership fraternity, visiting over 20 universities throughout North America. To maintain her interest in journalism while traveling, she wrote for two blogs and recorded video and audio for her organization. Now, she has more energy than ever for reporting news, and her goal is to bring the best quality, highest priority, relevant, and entertaining news to SPR. When Paige is not on air, she’s probably skiing, volunteering, or discovering new bands and artists.
