Sam in the Morning with Kelsey

Sam Hasson


What do I say about myself on my own website? Wait, I could say anything I want: it's MY website! For the sake of good radio I won't tell you my entire life story here. Instead, I invite you discover who I am and what I'm about on the air. Rather than tell you, I'll show you. What drives me is an insatiable curiosity to know and do everything. And then pass on what I have learned to other people. Does that sound like someone who ought to be in radio?


In the past twelve years I have had several co-hosts, each great in her own way. It's amazing how I have evolved on the air and the different directions I have taken over the years. I thank all of the listeners who have followed me through the various incarnations of my morning show, the reason this radio station was conceived.

Kelsey's journey began on a ranch in the small town of Hondo, Texas. Throughout grade school, she excelled academically and quickly discovered her talent for horseback riding. Kelsey won multiple national barrel racing titles during her high school years and went on to hold the titles of Miss Texas High School Rodeo and Miss Rodeo Texas Teen. She shined on stage competing in pageants and knew right away that she was destined for a career in entertainment. After graduating from Hondo High School, Kelsey attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated at the top of her class with a degree in broadcast journalism. Shortly after graduation, she took a leap of faith and moved to Los Angeles.
