A visit with Ron Franscell
A former editor of the Kelly Walsh Kelly Kall, Ron Franscell has become one of Wyoming’s most notable journalists. After working for newspapers in Wyoming, New Mexico, and California's Bay Area, he literally hit the road in one of American journalism's best beats, covering the evolution of the American West as a senior writer for the Denver Post. Shortly after 9/11, he was dispatched by the Post to cover the Middle East during the first few months of the Afghan war.
He has written 15 books, including his debut novel, ANGEL FIRE—listed by the San Francisco Chronicle listed it among the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century West—and THE DARKEST NIGHT, a bestselling true story about Wyoming’s most shocking crime, which still echoes more than 40 years later.
He’s been widely published in many of America's biggest and best newspapers, such as the Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He has been an on-air contributor at CNN, Fox News, NPR, the Today Show, ABC News, and other major broadcast outlets all over America. And he appears regularly on crime documentaries at Investigation Discovery, History Channel, and A&E.
Franscell spoke with NC students on October 4 sharing ideas on journalism, crime writing, interviewing and how students can take initiative to make it big!
