Get to Know: Jaren Schoustra

JerrinI’m the Fortress associate news director. This is my first year being on staff, and I’m extremely blessed to be a part of this team! My job is to put together the daily newscast. You know the local headlines you hear during the evening? That’s me! I’ll join you on your drive home at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 to give you a little glimpse of what has been happening in the community. I’ll also be training new people on the news team so you won’t grow tired of hearing just my voice all the time! I get to attend school board meetings, city council meetings, and interview community members to keep you updated on all things Grant County. My job is the best because I get to learn the ins and outs of how our community functions, and help keep you informed as well.

Being a part of 94.3 The Fortress has really helped me to discover the gifts God has given me. Through doing news I hope to become a better writer, and someday I hope to become a published novelist! My other hobbies include: reading, hanging out at open mic coffee shops, and snuggling with my kitty named Chuck. I’ll see you soon on WIWU news!
