Jody Knol

90.5 Classical Host

Jody Knol began announcing classical music on 90.5 WKAR while a student at MSU in 1982.

After receiving his degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities--music, theater and political science--Jody worked as chief announcer for WMUK in Kalamazoo for two years before returning to WKAR to host the morning program in 1986.

Trained as a singer, Jody combines his study of music and his stage experience to present the music he loves to listeners.
