Local Host, All Things Considered

It's a privilege to be the All Things Considered Host on SDPB Radio. I came to South Dakota after working as a newscaster and reporter at WOUB, Ohio University's NPR/PBS affiliate. I first found my love for radio and NPR as a student at The College of Wooster, where I managed WCWS, the campus radio station.

I'm originally from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - but my time in Ohio prepared me for the unpredictable weather here in the Northern Plains. I have a B.A. in communication studies from The College of Wooster and completed graduate work at Ohio University in journalism.

I also work as a reporter for SDPB, so feel free to email me if you have a story to tell. 

In my spare time, I enjoy learning more about local history, going to sporting events and concerts, following my favorite sports teams (USC Gamecocks, Carolina Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, and Atlanta Braves) and going to the gym.

Many thanks for your warm welcome to South Dakota and for your support of SDPB.

Mike Rounds

U.S. Senator Mike Rounds says the drought lends credibility to the importance of crop insurance and the Conservation Reserve Program.

Rounds says Farm Bill negotiations are set to open again next year. The current plan has about a year and a half left. Rounds says he expects a renewed emphasis for a strong crop insurance program.
