Boston's Only Classic Rock Morning Show with Kevin Karlson, Pete McKenzie & Heather Ford on 100.7 WZLX!
Get to Know Karlson, McKenzie and Heather
Mon – Fri | 6am-10pm
Kevin was born and raised in Ohio. His guidance counselor said he should pursue an exciting career in retail, but he took a chance on radio instead. He’s been working morning radio all over the country with his partner Pete McKenzie for over 30 years now. They’ve been fired from a few stations and left some on their own. Kevin’s hobbies include complaining about stuff and trying to lose weight, a battle that he’s currently losing. He’s won no radio awards, although he was named ‘Employee of the Month’ in June of 1994. The Karlson, McKenzie & Heather Show have been on WZLX for 14 years. It’s their longest run on any station they’ve ever worked at. Even they can’t believe it!
Pete was born in McKeesport, PA but was never a Steeler fan. He grew up in Cleveland OH and got his first radio experience at Cleveland State University calling games for CSU basketball and baseball. Pete began a long adventure with fellow radio star Kevin Karlson in 1985. Their careers have spanned decades now in several different markets. They have been hired/fired all over the United States, from Ohio to Virginia to Oklahoma to Massachusetts, just to name a few states that would have them over the years.
Heather was born and raised in the small town of Washingtonville NY. A town so tiny, the dairy farmer's daughters were also her ballet teachers. Fun fact: if you go to the town's Wikipedia page, you will NOT see her name under the Notable Residents section. (It's hard to compete with a guy who may or may not have directed an Eminem video). She began her radio career as the Morning Show Producer for Bob Miller on Mix 97 in Poughkeepsie. While there, she was asked to fill in on the Karlson and McKenzie Morning Show and was offered a permanent position with Kevin and Pete. She was only offered the job because she was the only woman Kevin didn't make cry. Now she spends her mornings trying to make him cry!
