Nick Brunner

Host: Hey Listen!

Nick Brunner grew up in rural Illinois with his sister, parents and a vast amount of corn. His first run-in with radio came when he and other cast members of the yearly musical would perform scenes on 1240-AM, WSDR in Sterling, Illinois.

He discovered NPR in college when he was hired to work, part time, on the air at WGLT-FM. Over that five year period Brunner came to appreciate the alternative that NPR and its affiliates provide to a drab and predictable commercial radio landscape.

These days Nick is experiencing his first taste of what he considers adulthood. He holds delusions of sophistication that often don't match his modest lifestyle. As a result, he spends time trying to find just the right wine to accompany Tuna Helper . . . a Shiraz works well.
