Since November 2009, Andy Hurst has been the midday announcer at KUOW. He’s at the microphone from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. He also serves as the audio engineer for Weekday and The Conversation, and he anchors the 2:00 p.m. program, KUOW Presents.
Before taking over the midday shift, Andy was KUOW’s backup announcer. He was heard just about everywhere on the radio schedule: early mornings, middays, evenings and weekends.
Andy joined the station in 2006 as an announcer for KUOW’s second program service, KUOW2. He started his career at Northwest Public Radio in Pullman, WA, where he served as the local host for Weekend Edition.
He's a Seattle-area native and a graduate of Washington State University.
