Robyne began her career in public radio and TV news at KUAC. She came to Alaska from California, intending to stay a year and ended up working as a radio reporter in Fairbanks, Homer and Barrow (now Utqiaġvik,) and as a TV newscaster in Fairbanks. She married and raised Alaskan children. She worked in non-profit management for Big Brothers Big Sisters and Fairbanks Native Association, and taught journalism as a professor at UAF. Robyne loves how Alaska listeners support their radio stations, "and they keep us on our toes," she says. "They demand quality and excellence, so we had better deliver that."
