Ian Swanson

Ian Swanson

A fourth-generation Nebraskan, Ian was born and raised in Omaha. He graduated from Millard North High School and the esteemed Hillsdale College (you heard Rush Limbaugh talk for years about Hillsdale). Ian and his wife, Narel (a former basketball player from Brazil) just welcomed their first child this summer (a son, Theo) and are committed to our community for the long haul as they raise a family here. ‘The Ian Swanson Show’ is about Omaha, our state, and the issues — good or bad — affecting our lives. He will reflect Nebraska values and won’t be afraid to ask the tough questions, even among the leaders with whom he has worked as a campaign volunteer, Congressional staffer, as one who himself ran for legislature, and – most recently – with the Nebraska Farm Bureau. The son of two worship leaders, Ian is a talented musician who is enjoys reading books on theology and history in his spare time. He and his wife are active in their local church community and love all things Huskers.
