Joe Schoenmann

News Director

Joe Schoenmann joined Nevada Public Radio in 2014. He works with a talented team of producers at State of Nevada who explore the casino industry, sports, politics, public health and everything in between.

Prior to joining KNPR, he worked in newspapers and magazines in Wisconsin, then in Nevada at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Las Vegas Sun and Las Vegas Life magazine. He’s won awards for investigative reporting, feature writing and deadline reporting, and has written a little-known book looking at a Vegas hitman and his son through the eyes of the son’s mother.

A Midwest native, Joe graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison. After a stint as a janitor, he turned to journalism. A Las Vegas resident since 1997, he spends his free time with friends, writing unproduced scripts, and observing life’s rich pageant.
