Joel Connelly reports in today’s Seattle PI that long-time 88.5 KNKX news director Erin Hennessey is leaving that position. Station manager Joey Cohen has begun the search for a replacement. For over 20 years now, Erin has provided excellent leadership to a dedicated team of reporters & some of the best radio news coverage available in our region. Future plans include some unspecified news projects. We wish Erin the best for a successful future!
As a side note: It was nice to hear Jazz/blues PD Carol Handley on air hosting the late evening jazz shift on KNKX last Friday.
