Reason #19: Morning Edition

For 30 years, WNIJ listeners have counted on one morning show to get them going: Morning Edition. Actually, we’ve carried it since the show’s original host Bob Edwards signed on in 1979, but on our (older) sister station, WNIU. We’ve seen a lot of changes in Morning Edition over the years (check out the theme songs!) but one thing has remained consistent since 1997: our local host, Dan Klefstad! Think we can convince him to stay another 30?

Morning Edition airs from 5 to 9 weekday mornings on WNIJ.
