About John & Kate in the Morning
John is part of the original morning team at Bigtown, having joined two months prior to its launch. He is perhaps best known to listeners for his handling of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, when he anchored television coverage from the opening minutes after the attack on the World Trade Center. John came to Bigtown from WADX-FM News where he was a correspondent for their news team and received an Emmy for newswriting.
A father of four, including a West Point graduate who recently returned from Afghanistan, Jon is a frequent speaker at events honoring veterans and our military service personnel. A Colorado native, he graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He’s a private pilot, an avid outdoorsman, a woodworker and a really bad golfer.
In addition to the Bigtown Morning Show, Kate is also a reporter with FOX News Tonight, which airs 10 p.m. to 11:35 p.m. Monday through Friday. Kate grew up in Hartsdale, NY, and studied at New Mexico State University, where she graduated with a degree in journalism and mass communications. Before moving to our town, Kate worked as a reporter for KXYZ-TV. She was the crime and courts reporter but really enjoyed her weekly animal spots where she covered stories with the local animal shelters and rescues.
Kate joined Bigtown in early October 2013 and is thrilled to be learning all there is to know about her new home.
