Khrista Rypl

Although she's been a member of Studio 360 since 2012 — first as an intern, currently as an assistant producer, and occasionally as a reporter — her favorite contribution to the show might be the tiger beanie baby she donated to the studio. She has reported on cultural trends both high (literally, space photography) and low (the cult classic film The Room). Khrista is a native of Ithaca, New York (it's gorges, yeah yeah yeah) and a proud graduate of Rice University (God Bless Texas). She loves new recipes, trying to keep plants alive, and hoarding books.

Khrista Rypl appears in the following:
