Chris Hayes had a guest on the latest broadcast of All In who may be familiar. Robyn Kincaid appeared on the MSNBC show where her views impressed social media users. The transgender activist is a radio host who has been supportive of liberal views for decades while living in the heart of a conservative region. Kincaid and her family have been vocal about their activism through her radio show and social profiles. But those who were introduced to her on All In for the first time want to know more about Kincaid. So, we compiled all the details on this activist in Robyn Kincaid’s wiki.

Robyn Kincaid’s Career

Robyn Kincaid attended Bradshaw High School, Westminster College (Missouri), and West Virginia University. She studied English, theatre, and anthropology at Westminster College from 1981 to 1983.

In 2005, she launched her radio show, Head-On, to broadcast and advocate for liberal values. While Robyn is the COO of the Head-On Radio Network (H.O.R.N.), her wife Agnes is the producer.

Former nurse Agnes answers calls, schedules interviews, plans and plays the music, and handles most of the technical stuff. Their children also worked on the show.

The family and employees working on Head-On reportedly do not make money for themselves or seek donations for personal uses. They do, however, accept contributions towards new equipment and keeping the program “free of advertising and corporate influence since 2006.”

Robyn also served as the president of the board of directors at Coal River Mountain Watch from 2006 to 2011. Her social media profiles also have sponsored posts, which may be additional revenue for Robyn.
