BEST FM RADIO PERSONALITY Minneapolis 2008 - Kerri Miller
Every weekday from 9 to 11 a.m., Kerri Miller, an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, burrows deep into current events and issues that often are nothing more than a sound bite in other media. On her show Midmorning, she's built a base for news and culture that can't be found anywhere else on the FM dial, not from DJs or other talk show hosts. A master interviewer, Miller perfectly mixes news analysis with intriguing non-news pieces. Where else could a listener expect to hear pieces analyzing global warming's impact on polar bears, an explanation about how the presidential election is shaking out in Wisconsin, and an interview with a long-distance open-water swimmer turned author all in one morning? The only answer is Midmorning. Miller's skill and range make her required listening for anyone who wants to be informed about news and the world at large.
