Hi, I’m Kyle.

I’m a multimedia journalist with a special love for radio. I’m the lead education reporter for WBFO, the NPR member station in Buffalo, New York, and I also specialize in covering Buffalo’s immigrant and refugee communities.

For some of my recent radio work, please visit my audio page.

Mackie_Reporting_Sjenica1Prior to joining WBFO, I covered politics and culture and did video production for Haaretz in Israel and the Palestinian territories. I also covered for the English desk’s video director for three months, during which I managed the team’s coverage of the 2018 U.S. midterm elections.

I hold a M.A. from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY and a B.A. in international affairs and geography from The George Washington University. I’ve also lived and studied in Germany (Ich spreche auch Deutsch), Scotland and India.

When I’m not out reporting, I can usually be found on some kind of outdoor or urban adventure: running, hiking, yoga, seeing live music and eating my way through new cities are all favorite activities.

Thanks for checking out my work!
