Jeremy Loeb

Morning Host / Reporter

Jeremy Loeb is a reporter and the APR host of Morning Edition. He joined the station in December of 2013.

Jeremy grew up in Durham, North Carolina. He got his start in radio as an intern at WHQR Public Radio in Wilmington, NC while attending the University of North Carolina Wilmington. He was an operations assistant, host of All Things Considered, and was one of a rotating roster of hosts for an eclectic half-hour music program during his six years there. He then spent two years back near his hometown, living in Carrboro, NC while working for North Carolina Public Radio – WUNC. He was a reporter, a Morning Edition producer, and backup host for All Things Considered.

After two years, he followed his girlfriend up to Washington D.C. where he slacked off and drove a pedicab on the National Mall. But he finally decided to “get it together” and returned to WHQR to be their All Things Considered host.

He was also a producer for two years on A Season’s Griot, out of Wilmington, the only nationally-syndicated Kwanzaa program in the country, and filled in for a short time as a producer on WUNC’s local affairs program The State of Things. Jeremy loves riding his bike and blasting indie bands in his headphones. He’s also a lifelong Duke fan but will pretend to be a Tide fan for the time being due to safety concerns.

by Tom Kanon
University of Alabama Press

The area of Mobile has played a critical role in multiple wars that shaped the United States.  The Battle of Mobile Bay 150 years ago was a major turning point in the Civil War.  And Mobile also was a critical strategic town during the War of 1812.  Historian Tom Kanon of the Tennessee State Library and Archives says the British wanted to take over Mobile to use it to make an attack on New Orleans more feasible.

Music fans have something to celebrate this weekend.  The annual Black Belt Folk Roots Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday in Eutaw.  The festival features blues, gospel, folk and old time roots music.  It’s also a feature of arts, crafts and food.  Carol Zippert is the event organizer. 

Carol Zippert: “For me, the festival holds our stories.  The Blues talks about struggle.  Struggle and perseverance, and just making it over.  And the Gospel talks about hope and faith, that we will continue to make it through our struggles.”
