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. It's a honor to say "This is SDPB News, I'm Jeremy Ludemann."
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."
