FM Staff & Newsroom
Emily Schwing started stuffing envelopes for KUER FM90 in Salt Lake City. It was meant to be volunteer position, but it turned into a multi-year summer internship. After developing her own radio show for Carleton College's KRLX, Emily was hooked. She moved on to an internship with 'Radio Expeditions' at National Public Radio in Washington, DC in 2006. She’s also worked for Deutsche Welle Radio in Bonn, Germany. Emily has also filed stories for NPR, APM, CBC, Monocle Radio and National Native News. Emily grew up between Denver, CO, Pittsburgh, PA and Salt Lake City, UT. She's lived in Homer, Sitka and Petersburg but now calls Fairbanks home. She earned her BA in Geology and Environmental Studies from Carleton College in Minnesota, and is completing her MS in Natural Resources Management at UAF. In the winter, Emily is KUAC's "Mushing Correspondent," following all 1000 miles of the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race.
