Ed Ronco

News Director, IPR

Ed Ronco joined IPR as its news director in the summer of 2022, after eight years with KNKX Public Radio in Seattle/Tacoma, where he was the local host of All Things Considered.

He’s an experienced reporter, interviewer and broadcaster, whose career has also included work in rural Alaska and northern Indiana.

Originally from Michigan, Ed is delighted to be back in his home state — and at Interlochen, no less, which he only ever dreamed of attending as a band and theater kid growing up in Wyandotte.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Michigan State University.
