Rebecca Green

News Director

Rebecca manages the news at WBOI. She joined the staff in December 2017, and brought with her nearly two decades of experience in print journalism, including 15 years as an award-winning reporter for the Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne.

A South Bend native, she is a graduate of Taylor University and resident of northeast Indiana since the late 1990's. Rebecca has covered everything from homicides to hurricanes, and the small stories in between that make up the fabric of a community. She is passionate about the importance of local news in guarding a strong democracy, and tries to instill that belief in her students as an adjunct instructor of journalism at Huntington University. 

In her spare time, Rebecca trains and handles a human remains detection dog, Helo, as a volunteer with Indiana Search and Response Team, a search and rescue organization.

Trevino is a 1999 graduate of St. Joseph's College and the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University in 2003. She was appointed as a magistrate in Allen Circuit Court in late fall 2013.
