Announcer Biographies

Peter O'Dowd

Reporter, Host
Peter O'Dowd Peter O'Dowd
Peter O’Dowd was raised in Phoenix and worked as a local print journalist before moving to New York City for graduate school. In 2007, he moved to Wyoming to report on oil, coal, wolves and all things rural for Wyoming Public Radio.

His work has been recognized by PRNDI, a national group of public radio news directors. And his stories have aired nationally on many NPR programs, and Marketplace.

Peter is a citizen of the European Union. It was a fluke loophole that offered him an Irish passport. He’s studied in Italy, and Washington, DC; he’s waited tables in Northern Idaho, and taught English in Japan. But this reporter prefers flip-flops over snow boots, t-shirts over parkas and home over distant places.
