Each week Pulitzer Prize finalist columnist and bestselling author Regina Brett delves into issues of the heart and soul to give listeners the tools to create a greater life. The Regina Brett Show tackles issues that are personal yet most universal to all. Regina is a columnist at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, and author of the books, “God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours” and “Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible.”
Meet the staff behind the Regina Brett Show
Joining the WKSU staff has been somewhat of a homecoming for me. No, I have never worked for WKSU but my first paying media job was as an intern with “All Things Considered” in Washington, D.C. It was there that I was introduced to the professionalism and standard of excellence that are hallmarks of NPR programming. There was no sitting around getting coffee. Every work day I tracked down newsmakers, pre-interviewed them and prepared them to converse with ATC hosts: Robert Siegel, Michele Norris and Melissa Block. It’s funny because that job so many years ago prepared me for what I’m doing now as the producer of The Regina Brett Show. I absolutely love my job!
Before serving as Regina’s show producer, I worked as an associate producer at WEWS-TV in Cleveland, Ohio and as a discussion leader on the Gannett owned site Cleveland.momslikeme.com. When I’m not at WKSU, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.
I’ve learned through my church that relationships are everything. I look forward to building relationships with as many listeners as possible.

Coming to WKSU is a return to radio for me. I’m a graduate student at Kent State University and WKSU’s Walton D. Clarke Graduate Fellow. I came to Kent State to learn TV. I started off in radio at Baldwin Wallace University and after arriving in Kent, it wasn’t long before the radio bug bit me again.
I’m the sound board operator for the show, which means I’m in charge of making sure that Regina and her guests sound as great on your radio as they do in our studio. It’s a great job that has introduced me to new people and viewpoints. I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
When I’m not punching buttons for Regina, I’m one of WKSU’s early risers. I produce our local segments of Morning Edition, which means that every day Regina does a show is a day I get to sleep in!
