Rebecca McInroy is a host, show creator, and senior producer, who produces a wide range of content for KUT, KUTX and KUT.ORG. Rebecca believes it is important that Public Radio directly connects with the community it serves. Many of her programs combine the talent, and knowledge of the Austin community, with the production arm of KUT/X Radio to produce content that bridges the gaps that lie between the world of news and entertainment.
Rebecca is the co-creator, host, and executive producer for Views and Brews, a discussion program taped live at the Cactus Cafe on the UT Campus. With this show KUT invites the community in to explore a wide range of subjects and ideas. We’ve talked about Jazz and the Spiritual Journey through the music of John Coltrane, The History of Defiance, Time, Memory, Food Politics, and much more. Our goal is to engage with the community to share thoughts, inspire new perspectives, and develop compelling content all while involving Austin in the discussion.
She is the co-creator, and executive producer for: Two Guys on Your Head, with Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke; Liner Notes, with Rabbi and jazz historian Neil Blumofe; and The Write Up with Owen Egerton.
She is also the co-creator, host, and executive producer for In Perspective, a round-table discussion program, produced in collaboration with The Humanities Media Project, that works to illuminate the importance of humanities research in a broader context.
Rebecca is currently in pre-production on The Secret Ingredient with Tom Philpott and Raj Patel, that will focus on the history of food systems, and food politics. This show is set to launch in September of 2015
