Katie Knapp Schubert

News Director

I came on board as KIOS-FM's first News Director in October 2007. Before coming to Omaha, I worked at commercial stations in Illinois. Here at KIOS, I do a variety of things: 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). I got my start in radio news while at SIUC, where I worked as a news reporter at WSIU-FM (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 (trivia: a Saluki is a dog of ancient Egyptian origin), and, of course, a Huskers fan.  On January 14, 2015, my husband and I welcomed our son, Russell. I’m the oldest of three girls, and the aunt of two nephews and a niece. I have two dogs who think they're humans.

If you’re on Twitter, you can follow KIOS at @KIOSOmaha, and me @katieontheradio. You can also email me at katina.schubert@ops.org. I welcome your questions and feedback.
