Layla - Midday Host

Hi, I’m Layla and I’m thrilled to join the KOHO 101 team! Born and raised in Alabama, I earned a degree in Broadcasting from Auburn University and am a 15-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 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!


marcus-bio-picMarcus Bellissimo - Reporter, Afternoon Host

Hello all. I’m very happy to call the Upper Valley my home, though I didn’t always live here. I grew up in Northern California and after college I moved to North Central Washington, where I fell in love with the Cascades and the glacial-swept landscape of the valleys. My beautiful wife and our son call Cashmere home.

I’m a news junkie, an avid lover of music and outdoor enthusiast. I always have a book to read, a sketch pad nearby and my piano, guitar, banjo, accordion… get the idea. I also enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen as much as I enjoy eating. 

I’ve been involved in broadcasting for many years, following in my late father’s footsteps. I have found a welcoming home at KOHO 101. I look forward to keeping listeners up-to-speed on current events and what’s happening in the community, as well as playing the best mix of music broadcast over the airwaves.
I’m always looking for new story ideas or any comments you may have. Please feel free to drop me a line at



Tim Creek - Meteorologist

Born and raised in central Illinois, I received a Bachelors degrees at Western Illinois University in 1981 and then a Masters degrees from the University of Nebraska in 1984, at which time I started work as a meteorologist. 

I moved to the Northwest in 1987 and have lived in Bellevue since 1988. I started working primarily with growers in central Washington in 1994 and have concentrated on agricultural weather forecast since,  producing forecasts not only for growers locally, but also for citrus growers in the central valley of California and avocado growers in southern California. Married with three boys, who have all attended WSU.

Hey, Randy 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 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.
