Bree Zender started working as Reno Public Radio's Morning Edition host and reporter in 2017. She's originally from the Pacific Northwest. She has two bachelor's degrees—one in journalism and the other in theatre—from the University of Montana in Missoula. 

Bree got her start in public radio hosting Morning Edition and reporting the news as an intern at Montana Public Radio. From there, she moved to San Luis Obispo, California, where she was a mid-day host and reporter.

When Bree isn't on the radio, she's usually hiking up a mountain, perusing Wikipedia or sitting at home waiting patiently to be on the radio again.
