Ariel Van Cleave
Ariel first entered a public radio newsroom in 2004 while in school at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. Even though she was mainly covering the stories others didn’t want… she was hooked. Since then Ariel has reported from places like the Illinois Statehouse and far-flung towns and villages in Alaska. She is a music geek, book nerd and is always up for a discussion about the finer points of public radio.
