Sieber is a 1981 graduate of Notre Dame. He began his college career intending to major in Physics before changing paths and pursuing his media vocation through concentrations in government, economics, history, and literature. As a result, he has what might be described as an eclectic set of interests – which explains why he enjoys reporting and interviewing on a wide variety of topics… including the weather, of course!
