Carol started as a newsroom volunteer at KCBX in the summer of 2017, inspired by her daughter's internship with KCBX News. She joined the KCBX staff in January, 2018. Carol started her radio career at Cal Poly’s KCPR, then moved on to become the director of programming and a morning host at KKUS (US98). Her voice was heard on advertisements and on KSBY TV for many years as well.
Carol’s interest in music and radio started when she was young. She began playing guitar at age 8, and still has old cassettes where she is pretending to voice commercials for soap from around that same time period. She remembers setting her alarm for midnight to listen to San Francisco station KFRC, because their first female DJ was working overnights.
Carol produces news and feature stories for KCBX, produces our radio magazine Issues & Ideas, hosts midday, and fills in as a local host during Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She loves the NPR style of storytelling, and is grateful to have the opportunity to share stories of the Central Coast.
