Born and raised in Seattle, Terae Stefon found his way into radio by volunteering at local community radio stations, eventually working as a producer and traffic reporter. You might have already heard him hosting weekend shows on KNKX's HD2 signal, Jazz24. Now you'll hear him during the week as well.

You can stream Jazz24 from your mobile device, or tell your smart speaker, "Play Jazz24."

"Both Steve and Terae will engage with the KNKX jazz community and contribute to our jazz storytelling as well," Handley added. "We’re excited about all these changes and the new ways they will let us engage with you."
