Midday Personality

Influenced by music starting at an early age, it comes as no surprise that KTG has found herself working in radio. Her diverse taste in music stems from her upbringing in West Virginia; listening to country music with her father, bluegrass with her grandparents, classical music with her maternal grandmother and artists such as The Clash, Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac , and the Grateful Dead a with her mother.

She remembers the first time she was able to control the radio in her parents’ car, and it was then that she discovered modern rock and artists like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and the Spin Doctors. She’s been passionate about discovering and acquiring new music ever since. While a big piece of her heart remains south of the Mason-Dixon, Katie has called Upstate New York home for about ten years.

Prior to moving to the Capital Region, she lived in Ithaca where she went to college and was able to thrive as a live music junkie. She graduated from Ithaca College with a B.S. in Television/Radio Communications and a Theatre minor.

When Katie’s not on the air, you can find her at a local show, hiking in the Adirondacks, exploring new places, eating yummy food and spending time with her family in West Virginia. You can also catch her every Wednesday night at 7:30pm hosting WMHT-TV’s local arts program, AHA! A House for Arts.

Sawyer Fredericks

What a pleasure it was to have Sawyer Fredericks in the studio! The winner of the 8th season of NBC's The Voice proves yet again that he is wise beyond his years. 

"From his song 'Red Memories,' to our conversation about his song 'Not Coming Home,' Sawyer Fredericks never ceases to amaze me. The future is so bright for this local 518'er, he might need some shades to go along with that iconic hat of his!"

Videos are below the audio player.  In the session, he plays "Red Memories," "Not Coming Home," and "A Good Storm."
