Get to know Kurt!
You will not find a bigger sports nut than Kurt Schroeder. He is excited and driven to bring you the best possible sports coverage from around the state.
Kurt’s passion for sports started at a young age. Like most kids, he aspired to be a professional athlete one day. But when it finally hit him that making a Major League Baseball roster wasn’t in his future, he turned his passion for sports and his love of watching TV into a more obtainable goal.
On the road to the Biggest Little City, Kurt immersed himself in a number of sports-related fields.
He graduated from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University in 2014 (GO COUGS!). At WSU, Kurt worked as an anchor and reporter for Murrow News 8, the television station on campus. Outside the classroom, he worked for the athletics department where he was able to conduct on-camera interviews with a number of WSU athletes and wrote for the school newspaper as a sports columnist.
After graduation, Kurt returned home to Bellevue, Washington. He interned for the sports department at KCPQ in Seattle, which he says was “one of the best decisions of my life.” He also worked at KIRO in Seattle for about a year as a writer and fill-in sports producer. Before moving to Reno he worked in Great Falls, Montana as a sports anchor and reporter for two years.
Despite being from the Seattle area, Kurt has no allegiance to Seattle sports. When his family took him back east as a child to visit family friends, he developed a love for Boston-based sports teams. As a result, any chance he gets to watch the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins, he’ll do it.
When he isn’t at work, Kurt is probably still talking about or watching sports.
If you see Kurt out and about around northern Nevada, don’t hesitate to say hi and give him a food recommendation. He loves to eat.
