Elizabeth Rembert

Elizabeth Rembert joined Nebraska Public Media in 2021 after time covering breaking news for Bloomberg News in New York. The Nebraskan native feels bad for people when they think Nebraska is flat -- she's from the beautifully hilly northeast region of the state. When she's not reporting, you can find her trying her backhand at a tennis court, reading a new book or hunting deals at thrift stores. She is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Before coming to St. Louis Public Radio in November of 2018, Jonathan was the General Manager for Tri States Public Radio in Macomb, Illinois. He previously was the News Director at Iowa Public Radio and before that at WCBU in Peoria, Illinois. Jonathan has also held reporting positions in central Illinois for public radio stations.

Jonathan is originally from the Chicago area. He has a B.A. in Music Theory and Composition from Western Illinois University and an M.A. in Public Affairs Reporting from the University of Illinois at Springfield. He is an avid long distance runner, semi-professional saxophonist and die-hard Chicago Cubs fan.
