Chris Hansen - News Director  - Morning Show Host      

The KOHO 101 Morning Show
MON - SAT: 6AM - 10AM

Icicle Broadcasting's Chris Hansen is one of the few remaining members of the North Central Washington media scene who is native to the region and continues to call it home. Hansen was born at the old Deaconess Hospital in Wenatchee and grew up in East Wenatchee where he graduated from Eastmont High School during the era of hurricane-proofing your hair with Aqua Net, just saying "No," and making mix tapes (three things he still proudly does to this day by the way :-).

After spending five years working as an illustrator of children's literature and brief stints doing everything from mixing Mai tais to scooping ice cream, Hansen made his way into the field of broadcast media where he quickly stropped his natural aptitude for verbal communication, including a nine-year run as host and creator of the Wenatchee Valley's first-ever television talk show.

Hansen has now authored a career of nearly two decades in the field of radio and TV, during which he has spent time as a disc jockey, reporter, stadium announcer and sports play-by-play broadcaster, including a seven-year skate as the original voice of the Wenatchee Wild hockey club.

Currently, Hansen is enjoying his second go around as host of the KOHO Morning Show, as well as the position of News Director for the station; a pair of gigs which allow him to continuously channel his passions for entertaining and informing the public.

Aside from his time behind the mic and his role researching and writing stories, Hansen also lives for excessively long road trips to any and all destinations unknown, as well as philosophy, art, fashion, 80's

Layla - Midday Show

MON - SAT: 10AM - 2PM

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 layla@koho101.com! Join me weekdays 10am-2pm!

 

Randy RoadzAfternoon Show

MON - SAT: 2PM - 6PM

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 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. 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. One of my biggest every day goals is to share a smile with someone who may not have one that day. Email randy@koho101.comJoin me weekday afternoons 2pm-6pm!
