Food and farm biz reporter Soderlin leaves Omaha daily
Omaha World-Herald business reporter Barbara Soderlin has left the paper for a job at the University of Nebraska.
Soderlin is now director of development at the University of Nebraska Foundation.
She spent nearly six years at the World-Herald, covering food and farming from the field to the supermarket, including ConAgra Foods, Omaha Steaks, Hy-Vee, the beef industry and agribusiness topics.
“I’m looking forward to learning new things and using what I learned as an agribusiness reporter to benefit the University of Nebraska,” said Sodelin in a message.
Before that, she was a night editor and a business reporter at the Rapid City Journal.
Soderlin also worked at the Casper Star-Tribune and Lincoln Journal-Star. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University and a master’s degree from South Dakota State.
