Audrey McGlinchy

Housing Reporter

What I Cover

I cover housing, with a focus on affordable housing solutions, renters’ rights and the battles over zoning. Everyone is impacted by decisions about housing, which adds a level of urgency and importance to what I do. The belief that everyone deserves to live in affordable and sanitary housing is fundamental to my reporting.

Feel free to email me with story ideas.

My Background

I have covered housing and local government in Austin for nearly a decade. Before joining KUT, I earned a master’s in journalism from the City University of New York and lived in Thailand, where I taught English and ate lots of khao soi. My work has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Planet Money.

Journalistic Ethics

I always identify myself as a reporter when I am working. If there is an error in one of my stories, I do my best to ensure it is quickly corrected. I work hard to demystify the costs of housing in my work, while also highlighting the people most affected by rising prices and unsafe conditions.
