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.

The state reported few problems during this month’s primary election.  Critics of voter photo ID say they’re waiting for the November election when more voters show up at the polls.
