KC Counts has been broadcasting to Southern New Mexico and West Texas audiences for 25 years.
She was born and raised in El Paso and graduated from Burges High School. From there, she went to Eastern New Mexico University in Portales where she began her radio career as a part-time board operator on weekends at KSEL.
After returning to El Paso, she worked her way to a morning show where she would team up with her long-time broadcast partner, Mike McKay. The two spent the better part of 18 years on the air together including KVLC in Las Cruces.
KC has always appreciated public media and its mission and is truly pleased to have joined the team as Broadcast Operations Manager for KRWG-FM. You can hear her regularly during “All Things Considered” from 4pm to 7pm weekdays and over the weekends…AND during “Morning Edition” when Anthony needs a vacation (even if it’s a working vacation).
You might hear KC mention her rescue pets (SIX of them) and her family’s deep roots in both El Paso and Las Cruces.
