[Weekdays 10am – 3pm]
E-mail Ken

Ken grew up about an hour away in Mitchell County, yet made stops in Mississippi and Tennessee before ending up in Asheville. Clearly, Ken is terrible at geography, but was somehow a Mitchell High valedictorian, which we really think he should stop mentioning. He started in radio at the age of 16 at WTOE in Spruce Pine. After several years as a TV news reporter, producer, and weather man, he joined our station in 2003, and co-hosted the morning show for almost eight years.

In that time, we managed to get him through dating and marriage. After the birth of his second child, Ken decided to leave the morning show to become a mostly stay-at-home dad.   He’s shifted to Mix Middays, where he now counts on the bosses taking an early lunch so they don’t see him turn the studio into a daycare center.
