Local Host, All Things Considered

What started out as volunteering to emcee high school pep rallies has turned into a vocation that has surpassed my wildest dreams. I'm new to these parts and grew up along the coast of South Carolina. I left there to go to The College of Wooster where I got a part-time gig at the campus radio station. I loved it so much that I ended up running the place my senior year.

As a grad student at Ohio University, I spent a good chunk of time at WOUB, the local NPR and PBS station. That experience led me to pursue a career in public broadcasting. 

My goal is to work with colleagues across South Dakota to deliver news and perspectives that matter.

If there's a story that you think is worth telling, please do not hesitate to contact me.

In my spare time, I like to go to sporting events, concerts, state parks, and museums. I'm trying to get to the gym more often, but looks like that New Year's resolution isn't panning out too well (I digress). 

Thanks for tuning in to SDPB, and as Charles Osgood says, "I'll see you on the radio." 

U.S. Representative Kristi Noem

U.S. Representative Kristi Noem will sit on the committee tasked with ironing out differences in the tax bills passed by the GOP-controlled House and Senate.

Noem joins four of her colleagues on the House Ways and Means Committee on the panel. Two members come from both the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee. 

South Dakota governor Dennis Daugaard requests all flags in the state fly at half-staff on Monday from 8 a.m. until sunset local time to honor state representative Craig Tieszen.

Tieszen died in a kayaking accident last Wednesday in the Cook Islands. His brother-in-law, Brent Moline, also died in the accident. Both were in the country to attend a wedding. 

U.S. Senator Mike Rounds says President Donald Trump supports efforts to adjust the federal tax code and legislation designed to stabilize the Affordable Care Act marketplaces.

On NPR's Here and Now, Rounds said he met with the President yesterday. The Senator says there are other items on the President's agenda in addition to tax and healthcare changes.
