Milwaukee Radio: Karen Dalessandro Is Ready To Rock

Karen Dalessandro
Milwaukee's hall-of-fame country radio voice is ready to rock.

Karen Dalessandro, who lost her gig at WKTI 94.5 FM when the station switched to a sports-talk format, said on Facebook that she's joined the on-air crew at classic-rock station WKLH 96.5 FM.

According to, her official start on the air will be at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Dalessandro did afternoons on WKTI for 13 months; before that, she was on the air for 19 years at WMIL-FM (106.1) — both country music gigs.

A two-time Country Music Association personality of the year, Dalessandro was inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2015.

Although Dalessandro has spent the last 20 years doing country radio in Milwaukee, she said on WKLH's morning show Wednesday that she did rock radio before that. She also noted that the first concert she went to growing up in Detroit was Bob Seger — whose farewell tour is coming to Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum Jan. 24.
