Pat Loeb
Pat Loeb’s radio experience has the makings of a country song: she lived a lot of places, went down a lot of roads, but they all led her home — to Philadelphia and to KYW Newsradio, where she started her career some 30 years ago.

Born and raised in Philadelphia and environs, she graduated magna cum laude from Temple University’s renowned School of Communications and Theatre and, after three invaluable years at KYW, spent the majority of her work life in public radio, including four years as a foreign correspondent based in Asia, which gave her the opportunity to cover stories such as coups d’etat, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, and the return of Imelda Marcos to Manila to reclaim her shoes.

A digression into motherhood was punctuated by print work for the Washington Post, the Congressional Quarterly, and the Pew Center for Civic Journalism, among other gigs.

She returned to radio in Los Angeles, as a correspondent for the public radio business show “Marketplace.”

Pat rejoined KYW in 2008 and says she is “incredibly grateful for the chance to once again work with the most outstanding broadcast news team in the Delaware Valley… make that the most outstanding broadcast news team anywhere.”

Pat is married to Vernon Loeb, managing editor of the  Houston Chronicle, and is the mother of four amazing children:  Katie Loeb, of New York City; David, a student at Temple University; Frances, an All-American runner at Johns Hopkins; and Julia, a student at Colorado University-Boulder.
