Morning host extraordinaire Melissa Marconi-Wentzel returned to the KCAW fold this October, bringing her unique blend of poise and warmth to our early AM weekday sound. Melissa has served both as program director (2007-2008) at Raven Radio, and as reporter (2004-2007), before taking some time to raise her family. Melissa’s also wrapping up her degree in Communications at UAS, and plans to make broadcasting her career. “I knew I wanted to come back to Raven Radio,” she says. “But when I sat down in that chair (in the air room) I knew that this is who I am.” We never had any doubt!

Melissa will be our primary local voice on Morning Edition, with backup from the capable (and early-rising) Peter Apathy. Welcome baaaaack, Melissa!
