Kari is in her 32nd year in radio. She grew up in Southern California and after earning her broadcast journalism degree at Cal State Long Beach she moved to Hawaii to take a job as news director on the island of Kauai. Kari quickly fell in love with all things radio and after spending 10 years in the islands, and eventually hosting her own morning show on Oahu, she headed back to Southern California to host the midday show on KOST 103.5. She has been contributing to KOST’S success for the past 22 years and also does a weekend show on iHeart 80s @ 103.7 in San Francisco. Kari’s passion for radio is evidenced by the incredible relationship she has developed with her listeners. Kari is a huge sports fan and loves to go to ball games, concerts, and theater. The only thing that brings her more joy than inspiring her listeners is being the proud mother of her two sons.
