Kiah Haslett is a serious business reporter always ready to follow the money and keep those in charge on their toes. The Omaha native is also a style-savvy fashionista, a staunch feminist and a foodie who never turns down a good ribeye.
A perfect vacation would include sleeping in late, eating pad see ew and chicken tempura at Blue Orchid and taking a road trip to the Grand Canyon with friends, with a healthy dose of shoe shopping along the way.
“I have a lot of energy. I’m interested in a lot of things,” Haslett said. “I like to make people laugh, or smile at least.”
She’s been interested in writing since third grade, when her teacher praised her book report in front of the class. During her sophomore year of high school, she tried out and got on the staff of Marian High School’s student newspaper, The Network, and journalism has been her focus since.
Haslett has interned for the Chicago Tribune and The Arizona Republic, was a fellow at the Omaha World-Herald and is a news editor for the Daily Nebraskan.
