Rando - Midday Show / Program Director

Hey, Rando here. Glad to say the Wenatchee Valley is my adopted home town. I came here from Aberdeen, Wash. in 1996 and never looked back. So much to enjoy here in Central Washington.

When I'm not here at KOHO, you might find me grilling or barbecuing in my luscious back yard and patio, enjoying our Pybus Public Market or teeing off at one of our many spectacular golf courses. I'm a proud member of the WSU Alumni Association and Cougar Athletic Fund member. You'll find me Saturdays during the fall and winter at Martin Stadium in Pullman and an occasional Cougs road game, some of which have been BYU in Provo Utah and Auburn in Auburn, Alabama.

Layla - Afternoon Host

Hi, I’m Layla and I’m thrilled to be part of the KOHO 101 team! Born and raised in Alabama, I earned a degree in Broadcasting from Auburn University and am a 17-year veteran of both radio and television. I stepped away from TV news several years ago when I realized radio is my true passion.

As a military spouse, I consider myself fortunate to have lived and broadcast in all four corners of the U.S. My husband and I became avid Mariners fans when we were stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord over a decade ago and we have been loyal followers ever since. We’re a family who loves snow – my husband and two sons snowboard every chance they get, while I can be found in the lodge, by the fire, preferably with a warm adult beverage. Feel free to drop me an email at!


Ken Johannessen - News Reporter

Hi! I’m Ken.  A Seattle boy who’s been playing radio here in Wenatchee for 35 years.  (As I often say, I’ll keep doing it until I get it right.)
My career is my hobby, so when I’m not here, I’m in my home studio working as a freelance voice for hire, heard on commercials and audio news releases around the country, and my podcast, “Conversation Collage.”  I also love anything old-time radio or TV, whether it’s listening to it, watching it, or researching and reading about it.  Feel free to check out my website at
