Kate Grumke

Senior Environmental Reporter, STLPR

Kate reports on the environment, climate and agriculture for St. Louis Public Radio and Harvest Public Media.

She started at STLPR in 2021 as the education reporter, covering late night school board meetings and tagging along on field trips. Before that, Kate spent more than 5 years producing television in Washington, D.C., most recently at the PBS NewsHour. In that work she climbed to the top of a wind turbine in Iowa, helped plan the environmental section of a presidential debate and produced multiple news-documentaries on energy and the environment. She also won a Peabody, a National Murrow Award and was nominated for a National Emmy.

Kate grew up in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She also holds a certificate in data journalism from Columbia University’s Lede Program.
