Hi I’m Mel McKay and I think I have the best job in the world!
I’ve spent the majority of my adult life in radio, ‘town to town, up and down the dial’. California is by far, my favorite state. I was living in San Diego when Wayne asked if I’d like to spend Hometown Mornings with him. I said Yes, Yes, a thousand times YES! Now your hometown is my hometown too.
I’m a super sappy hopeless romantic, who loves old movies, partial to all Cary Grant films. I love Star Wars, Halloween, traveling, I like to cook, good conversation and movie marathons, not at the same time of course. I’m a bookworm and I recently started learning to play guitar.
I live in Pleasanton with my 9 year old miniature Yorkie, Nigel Winston III. I’ve been on a couple career journeys outside of radio in recent years, became a renaissance woman of sorts. I’m beyond thrilled spend Hometown Mornings with you.
At 9am, I say goodbye to Wayne & kick off The KKIQ 84 Minute Work Day Kick Off, at least 84 minutes of commercial free music. We have the Ultimate Coffee Break everyday around 10:40. Then I continue to play your favorite songs until 12 Noon. Thanks for making me a part of your mornings.
Nigel is an excellent driver!
Ready for a road trip!
