Bobby Blanchard

Bobby Blanchard runs the Tribune’s social media efforts. He also spearheads "This Is Your Texas: Campus Correspondents," an online community for college students who want to discuss higher education policy and news. A graduate of UT-Austin, Bobby spent his first year out of college at The Dallas Morning News as a reporting fellow, covering Texas politics and breaking news. He got his start in journalism in the poorly lit basement of The Daily Texan, followed by internships at the Houston Chronicle, KUT News and yes, the Tribune. Born and raised in the Houston area, Bobby is a native Texan. He relies on a steady supply of Tex-Mex and Red Bull to survive.
