We certainly miss starting our day listening to Melanie Morgan on the radio. Although she may not miss the demands of the 5 to 9 a.m. KSFO radio show she co-hosted for almost 15 years, we welcome this opportunity to have her energize us again.

As the policies and proposals coming out of Democrat-controlled Sacramento seem burdensome, overbearing, nonsensical, even punitive, Melanie will offer strategies and solutions to redirect state policies. (Melanie was one of the early leaders in the recall of Gov. Gray Davis, an effort that was thought to have had no traction.) She effectively mixes humor, political insight and passion.

Melanie has been a tireless advocate on behalf of the United States military. She is the Chairman of Move America Forward, a “non-partisan,” non-profit, charitable organization that supports the U.S. armed forces and their missions in the War on Terrorism.

In 2015, Melanie was honored by the Radio/Television/Digital News Association and the Associated Press with the Edward R. Murrow and Mark Twain Awards. She returned to radio on KSRO in San Francisco in 2014 and anchored the “Sonoma County Morning News.” (Melanie did her farewell broadcast on KSRO on November 23, 2016, the day before Thanksgiving.) She was also the News Director of the Heritage Radio Station located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Previously on KSFO, she co-hosted the morning show with Brian Sussman. For almost 15 years, Melanie was co-host of the highly-rated Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan show also at KSFO. She also worked in Washington, D.C. as anchor of Talk Radio Network’s nationally syndicated America’s Morning News. Melanie has been a frequent guest on cable TV news stations such as Fox News, CNN and the BBC.
