Celia Llopis-Jepsen Joins Kansas News Service Staff

May 23, 2017

Kansas News Service reporter Celia Llopis-Jepsen will be based in Topeka.

Celia Llopis-Jepsen has joined the Kansas News Service in Topeka, and we’re really excited about it.

Celia comes to our newsroom after four-and-a-half years at the Topeka Capital-Journal. She brings in-depth experience covering schools and education policy in Kansas as well as news at the Statehouse. In the last year she has been diving into data reporting. At the Kansas News Service she will also be producing more radio, a medium she’s been yearning to return to since graduating from Columbia University with a master’s in journalism.  

Celia also has a master’s degree in bilingualism studies from Stockholm University in Sweden. Before she landed in Kansas, Celia worked as a reporter for The American Lawyer in New York, translated Chinese law articles, and was a reporter and copy editor for the Taipei Times.

We are proud to have a reporter with such talent and global perspective on our team.  

The Kansas News Service is a collaboration of KCUR, Kansas Public Radio and KMUW covering health, education and politics. Celia’s addition underscores our commitment to producing essential enterprise reporting and connecting the dots in tracking policies, issues and events that affect Kansans’ health and the health of their communities.
