Jacob is a senior at the University of Nevada, Reno studying journalism and political science. Before coming to KUNR in the fall of 2017, Jacob worked for KNPR as a reporter covering Nevada’s 2017 legislative session in Carson City. He has also been a writer and editor for UNR’s student-run newspaper, The Nevada Sagebrush, since 2014.
A Las Vegas native, Jacob is a long-time super-fan of all things public radio. When he’s not out covering stories, he’ll spend his free time catching up on a book, compulsively listening to podcasts, bingeing Veep and learning how not to cook so badly.
