Southern California native, Kari Steele, started her broadcast career shortly after earning a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Cal State Long Beach. After accepting a position as a News Director for a radio station in Kauai, her love for radio broadcasting (and Hawaii) grew, and her career evolved over the next ten years to include hosting her own morning show on Oahu.

Kari returned to California to host a show on KOST 103.5, and has contributed to the station’s success for the past 28 years. In addition to entertaining listeners during her midday show, she also serves as host of KOST’s public affairs show, Sunday Journal, as well as The Breeze 98.1 in San Francisco. Her passion for radio is evidenced by the incredible relationship she’s developed with fans, and she continues to impress and inspire millions of loyal listeners everyday.

Beyond her role on radio, Kari is a proud mother of two sons.
