Northwestern Media has many people who work really hard. But today, KJNW/KC (LIfe 88.5) Director of Operations/morning co-host Melony McKaye-Olson was singled out as the recipient of the prestigious Ellie Holcomb Award,

KJNW OM Adam Hannan tells HisAir, “Because if there’s anything that can be done to serve our listeners, Mel would be thinking, “I don’t want to miss it!” Making the most of every break, programming with all she’s got, reporting severe weather until 3am in relatable ways, etc. She does have a life outside of work (and an a really interesting one, too!), but the level of care for her community is remarkable! Congratulations on your award, Mel”

HisAir NEWS FLASHBACK – March 16, 2020 – Alan Mason has returned to EMF as interim VP Radio after Randy Chase resigned last week.  On January 3rd this year Alan “retired” and went on the board. Alan told HisAir, “When Randy resigned I was asked to fill in until they found a replacement for the VP of Radio role, which will become a C level position under a new name. I came off the board at that time because you can’t be board and staff at the same time.”  EMF will be interviewing for the Chief Audio Office position now, and that individual will begin looking for a KLOVE PD.
