Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Kirsten made her way north for school where she spent four years working at KWVA Eugene. From production assistant to DJ to eventual News Director, Kirsten wore a number of hats at KWVA. A stint at Oregon Public Broadcasting brought her to Portland, which she now calls home.
Kirsten loves the fast-paced world of the broadcast industry, and currently works at KATU News. Before that she spent time in Washington D.C. as the social media manager for ABC7. She’s excited to start her Wednesday mornings with the wonderful Portland Radio Project listeners.
Tune in to Get UP PDX! Wednesday mornings, 7-9 a.m. for a mix of alternative rock, indie and pop with a handful of tracks from local artists. You’ll hear everything from Kings of Leon to Leon Bridges. (Kirsten promises it will make your commute less painful).
