Katie Knapp Schubert
I came on board at KIOS-FM's first News Director in October 2007. Before coming to Omaha, I worked at commercial stations in Illinois. Here at KIOS, I anchor news, report, write and produce copy and sound for use on air and on the web. I also manage our social media sites on Facebook and Twitter.
My interest in broadcasting began at a young age, and I’ve always been interested in government and politics. I have a bachelor’s degree in Radio-Television News from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale (www.siuc.edu), and a Master’s Degree in Public Affairs Reporting from the University of Illinois-Springfield (www.uis.edu). While at SIUC, I worked as a news reporter at WSIU-FM in Carbondale (also a NPR station). I was a Statehouse Reporter for Illinois Public Radio in 2004.
When I’m not covering news, I watch a lot of sports. I’m a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, my Southern Illinois University Salukis, and, of course, a Huskers fan. My husband, Scott, and I welcomed our first child, Russell, in January 2015. I’m the oldest of three girls, and the aunt of two nephews and a niece.
