Austin Fast

I'm a journalist based in Phoenix with a decade of radio, TV, print and web experience. I talk with all sorts of people and report what I learn through audio, visual and written media. I adapt quickly, work well solo or with a team and won’t buckle under pressure.

I completed my master's degree in investigative journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in December 2020.

My past roles include reporting news from the world's largest wild salmon fishery in Dillingham, Alaska (KDLG Public Radio); covering breaking news and social media as web editor at the ABC affiliate (WCPO-TV) in Cincinnati, Ohio; teaching English and journalism for the Peace Corps in Eastern Europe (Macedonia); and a Dow Jones News Fund fellowship with the Center for Investigative Reporting in Berkeley, California.

Through a decade of journalism, I’ve produced multimedia and print content with: KJZZ Public RadioKDLG Public Radio | WCPO-TV | WMUB Public Radio | Current | The Dayton Business Journal | Indian Country Today | The Center for Investigative Reporting | Crooked Media | The Arizona Republic | KosovaLive | The Miami Student | | | European Youth Media Days
