Holly Hutchings

News Intern

Holly joined KUNR in June of 2017 as an intern from the Reynolds School of Journalism. Holly developed a love of public radio when she was looking for news content from a fair, truth-telling source and found NPR. She will graduate from UNR next spring with a bachelor's degree in journalism. 

When she's not working toward her future career, Holly is home with her husband and three children. They can usually be found exploring fun things to do in Reno, trying new restaurants or hiking the area's awesome trails with their dog, Deputy.

Isolated geographically between the oceans and mountains, the Basque region between Spain and France has a rich food scene focusing on whole ingredients and flavorful spices.  KUNR’s Holly Hutchings visited a tasting in Sparks as part of Artown.

Strolling through the farmers market and vendor booths at Victorian Square, it’s easy to see Basque culture shine. Old proverbs line the walkways and people play games like corn cob tossing. You may even hear a traditional Basque war cry from a voice in the crowd.

Volunteer typists will gather at Reno’s City Plaza to dictate messages from passersby who want to convey their thoughts to the president. Artist Shery Oring sat down with our Holly Hutchings to discuss her project, “I Wish to Say.”

Oring has spent the last thirteen years touring the country. On every stop, she collects post cards written by passersby that she sends to the White House. To date, she's mailed more than 3,200 of them from people of all backgrounds and political perspectives.
