After a year away from the microphone, Ben Nuelle is joining the Agri-Pulse editorial team in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 1, where he will write and broadcast for the company’s subscription-only newsletter and website.

Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant says Nuelle was a freelancer for them while he worked at the Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network “and we’ve continued to be impressed by his interest in the intersection of policy and politics.” Most recently, Nuelle served as an agriculture specialist for Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst.

Nuelle grew up on a hay and cattle farm near Higginsville, Mo., and studied multimedia journalism at Northwest Missouri State University, where he worked for KXCV/KRNW radio as a news anchor and reporter. He also studied economics at George Mason University in Arlington, Va., and interned for Radio America. He is a recipient of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting’s Doan Award and the Institute on Political Journalism Director’s Award. Nuelle is also an accomplished pianist, often showcasing his talent in church, at weddings, and in front of two National FFA audiences.

Congrats Ben – we knew you couldn’t stay away from the microphone for long!
