Matt Streb

Tune in Tuesday mornings to WNIJ (89.5 FM) this fall and you’re likely to hear the voice of NIU Political Scientist Matthew Streb.

Every week until Election Day, Streb will do a weekly segment with host Dan Klefstad, providing analysis on this year’s congressional races. The segments will air at 5:33 a.m. and 7:33 a.m. (Because of Labor Day, his segment will be heard on Wednesday morning this week.)

Streb also will also talk about his new book, “Rethinking American Electoral Democracy,” during a Sept. 10 live show on the RFD Radio Network. The book provides a critical examination of the state of electoral democracy in the United States and an analysis of the major debates that rage among scholars and reformers.
