Bronte Cook is a rising third year student at Ithaca College pursuing a B.A. in journalism with a minor in women and gender studies. There, she is a recipient of the Park Scholar Award, a competitive scholarship presented to individuals with a passion for media, leadership and community service.
Originally from Minneapolis, Bronte has always been drawn to the art of storytelling. Before arriving at IPR in 2019 as the summer news intern, Bronte worked with a number of radio stations including WRFI (Ithaca, NY) and WKNO (Memphis, TN) to produce feature-length audio pieces and is the co-host of 'In Between,' a podcast that highlights unique individuals and explores the role of college students in today's politically and emotionally turbulent world.
Aside from journalism, Bronte is passionate about music, art and education. One day, she hopes to report on all three using different audio and visual storytelling techniques.
