Ken Vincent

News Director

Ken Vincent is a veteran of public radio going back, oh, let's just say 30-plus years.   Back then, after short stints in commercial radio in his native state of Washington, he broke into public radio as news director and local Morning Edition host for public station KTOO-FM in Juneau, Alaska.  In the mid-1980s, he returned to Seattle and over the course of the next 25 years worked a news reporter, local program host, producer, announcer, editor, and program engineer for Seattle NPR station KUOW.  At, let's just say, a certain age, he happily fled Pacific Northwest weather to return to a place where he lived briefly when he was younger: Southern California.  Now here at 91.9 KVCR for the past let's just say 6-plus years, Ken has considered himself very fortunate to have a job with hours that allow him to bypass rush-hour commutes in order to report on rush-hour commutes.  Hear Ken Vincent do Inland Empire traffic, weather, news, and feature interviews weekday mornings on 91.9 KVCR's Morning Edition.  Hear, read, and see local, state, and NPR News and podcasts at kvcrnews.org
