Kate Grumke


From indigenous land rights to third party politics, Kate tells stories you don't often see on the nightly news. She hails from St. Louis and converted to Newsy from the public radio world. When she's not obsessively scrolling through news, you can find Kate catching a movie, playing the ukelele or joining yet another book club. She works out of Newsy's Washington, D.C. bureau, and you can follow her on Twitter at @KGrumke.
