Rachel Osier Lindley
Rachel Osier Lindley is Statewide Senior Editor for The Texas Newsroom. That's a regional news hub linking stations across the state, the prototype for NPR's Collaborative Journalism Network. She connects with newsrooms across Texas to plan and produce collaborative news coverage and projects, daily statewide newscasts, content for the public radio newsmagazine Texas Standard and national coverage for NPR and other outlets.
Previously, Lindley served as news director for WBHM in Birmingham, Alabama. Before WBHM, Lindley was news director at Marfa Public Radio/West Texas Public Radio, where she played an essential role in building the fledgling station from the ground up.
Lindley holds an MBA from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas, as well as a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The University of Texas at Austin. She grew up outside of Chicago and has been a radio nerd since childhood.
