Veteran Milwaukee air personality Karen Dalessandro will take over the afternoon show on 96.5 WKLH as the full-time host. Dalessandro, who joined WKLH on a part-time basis in December, will host weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m. as well as a weekend show that will soon be announced.

"I’ve come full circle. That’s the best way to describe my arrival on the afternoon show at WKLH," says Dalessandro, who started her career at a rock station in Michigan. "David Bowie, Zeppelin, Aerosmith and KISS were all staples on my turntable in high school."

Before joining KLH, Dalessandro was heard doing mornings on WMIL and later afternoons on WKTI. She is a guest host on "The Morning Blend" and the brand ambassador for Stein's Garden & Home.

"Karen has an established fan base, roots in rock radio and a deep desire to engage with listeners. Her professionalism and outgoing personality have impressed our entire team," says Milwaukee Radio Group Operations Manager, Bob Bellini.

Molly Snyder started writing and publishing her work at the age 10, when her community newspaper printed her poem, "The Unicorn.” Since then, she's expanded beyond the subject of mythical creatures and written in many different mediums but, nearest and dearest to her heart, thousands of articles for OnMilwaukee.

Molly is a regular contributor to FOX6 News and numerous radio stations as well as the co-host of "Dandelions: A Podcast For Women.” She's received five Milwaukee Press Club Awards, served as the Pfister Narrator and is the Wisconsin State Fair’s Celebrity Cream Puff Eating Champion of 2019.
