Liam Niemeyer grew up listening to NPR on the way to school in Ohio, and he eventually learned how to tell stories himself like the ones he heard every day.

He has done stints as a reporter and producer at Wyoming Public Radio, KRBD Community Radio, WCPO-TV, WYSO Public Radio and most recently at WOUB Public Media in Athens, Ohio. At WOUB, he led and supervised a team of reporters on “The OUtlet,” a magazine-style news radio show.

He is a recent graduate of Ohio University, and in his free time, he enjoys playing a mean tenor saxophone.
