Robin Clasen Wunderlich is editor of The Eureka Herald, a weekly paper covering Greenwood County.

A week before she received her second bachelor’s degree from Wichita State University, Robin’s father and then editor/publisher of The Eureka Herald passed away from a massive stroke. At the time, she didn’t think she would continue the role, but was focused on making sure deadlines were met and not one publication was missed. She took over as editor in December 2007 and learned the trade solely by trial and error. Robin purchased the business from her mother, Rachel, in 2015.

Robin is a third-generation Kansas newspaper editor, following in both her father and grandfather’s footsteps. She was raised in Eureka where her parents owned The Eureka Herald, her father serving as Editor/Publisher. He also served as editor of the Florence Bulletin and Yates Center News before purchasing The Herald in 1976. Her grandfather, George H. Clasen, owned three different papers during his career including: Marysville Advocate, Florence Bulletin and the Garnett Review.

Robin and her husband, Wes, reside in Eureka with their two sons, Camden and Cooper.
