Kevin Siegel hosts the Early Bird Special every weekday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on WDLC Country. He’s live and local, talking about everything going on in the Tri-State community and all things country. Hank Gross joins Kevin when he delivers the news twice an hour.
Wake up with the Early Bird Special every weekday morning, and have a great morning!
Kevin Siegel grew up in the town of La Grange, NY in Dutchess County. He always had a passion for different kinds of music dating back from the 60’s and 70’s to current music today. He loved sports growing up and listened to sports radio on WFAN 660/101.9 as a kid every night before bed. Needless to say, that was when the radio aspirations started…or”dreams”…No pun intended!
Once he went through high school he decided to try and work in sports, specifically golf, so he attended Coastal Carolina University in Myrtle Beach for the Professional Golf Management specialization program. Country music was everywhere down there, and he didn’t “love it” at first but being there for a while, hearing all of the songs that came out in those years, really getting to know the artists and lyrics that were sung, he really developed a strong connection for it and now works in the industry. Things really do come full circle!
Once there for almost three years, he decided that he still had his passion for radio…he couldn’t not go forward in his college career without trying it and wanted to go all in. He transferred to upstate New York(From sandy beaches to snow? Really?!)to SUNY Potsdam’s Speech Communication Program where he knew friends and wanted to meet new people. He hit the ground running with an internship, part-time radio gigs and then eventually on air positions in news and his own country morning show in Ogdensburg, NY. Once the position opened for the morning show on WDLC back near his hometown…he knew he HAD to get it. Currently he has since moved back to the area to continue his radio career right here on WDLC Country!
When listening to Kevin on the airwaves, you’ll find that he brings a lot of energy to the table. So when you wake up in the morning, you’ll be sure to hear his positive, energetic vibe! He may be our youngest morning show host, but he knows the important values in life like family, which he stresses ALWAYS comes first. You will hear him talk about his two dogs, his family members, his interests like fishing, golf and really get to know who Kevin is.
Kevin is very excited to be here with us, and he is looking forward to having fun with you every single morning here on Country 107.7 WDLC!
