KFAI's Program Committee has made its selections to finalize a regular on-air host line-up for the Morning Blend. The program was conceived as a news department-led collaboration between news and music hosts guided by a producing anchor each weekday morning from 6 to 8 am. Five teams have been named, bringing together a varied collection of voices that are both fresh and familiar to KFAI listeners.
Music Host - Cory Washington
News Host - Siobhan Kierans
Music Hosts - Ron Thums and Jean Silverberg
News Host - Terry Carter
Music Host - David Cummings
News Host - Flor Frey
Music Host - Mark Koerner
News Host - Paul Brohaugh
Music Host - Brenda Bell Brown
News Host - Yvette Howie
The Wednesday edition of the Morning Blend is anchored by Mike Fischbein, with engineering by Mike Stapp. News Director Dale Connelly anchors and engineers Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Congratulations to all the hosts! Listen as they bring their many talents to the task of shaping this new program over the coming weeks and months.
The news department is looking for additional volunteers to join these teams in support roles as news writers, Facebook posters, news story Tweeters, story editors, website updaters, researchers, schedulers and interviewers.
