Good morning, Early Riser! Since 1997 I've been waking WNIJ listeners with the latest news, weather, and program information with the goal of seamlessly weaving this content into NPR's Morning Edition.
Since January, 2018, I've been delivering Illinois-focused newscasts for NPR listeners on WNIJ and partner stations WUIS, WCBU and WSIU.
As WNIJ's content manager, I'm responsible for what you hear on the air, and what you see on our website and social media platforms.
Questions/concerns/suggestions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tweet @danklefstad. Or call 815-753-9000.
Last but not least: Thank you very much if you're a financial supporter of this station. If not, I welcome your new membership here.
