STAR 102.5 MORNING SHOW HOST

Come live, work, and play in Des Moines. It’s vibrant, it’s alive, and it’s constantly evolving.  We have a great food scene, a fantastic trail system, and lots of concerts, festivals, and sports. If there’s a Top 20 Cities List, Des Moines is on it.

Ken, Colleen, and Kurt in the Morning have been Central Iowa’s morning show of choice for over 20 years, but now, Colleen has decided to hang up the headphones, so Ken & Kurt need a new co-host! If you know how to be yourself on the radio and aren’t afraid to do some over-sharing, we have a microphone ready for you! Great at social media, audio, and video production?  Even better!

STAR 102.5 (KSTZ-FM) has a great on-air staff, and they have all been here at least 20 years, so this is a rare opening. We’re all about being LIVE and LOCAL! Showcase your skills by sending your resume and demo to KAuge@dsmradio.com.
