Jane Carlson

Regional Reporter

Jane Carlson is TSPR's regional reporter.

She grew up on a farm at the edge of the woods along the banks of Pope Creek in west central Illinois and has a degree in English from Monmouth College. Her family always played NPR for the sows in the farrowing house.

Jane has more than 25 years of experience in publishing, grant writing, journalism, and non-profit management, even serving as TSPR's general manager for a time. But she has always been a reporter at heart.

Her work has appeared in print and on-air across the state and has won awards from the Illinois Press Association, Illinois News Broadcasters Association, Best of Gannett, and the Public Media Journalists Association. She also serves as faculty advisor for Knox College's award-winning student newspaper, The Knox Student.
