Kirsten Kendrick

Morning Edition Host

Kirsten Kendrick has been hosting KNKX’s Morning Edition since 2006. She handles all aspects of the show - from news selection and writing to audio production. Kirsten has worked in radio for 30 years. She was born in Ohio, grew up in Indiana and attended high school and college in North Texas. In addition to being a journalist and active in the public radio host community, Kirsten is also sports lover. She and her husband Troy live in Seattle with their son Del and their dog Jillian.

Kirsten's most memorable moment at KNKX: "Being on the air during the fatal train derailment in DuPont in 2017 and relaying important information to listeners. It's my job and I take it very seriously."
