Indy Radio: Q95 Alum Kristi Lee Launches Podcast

Kristi Lee with Bob Kevoian
Popular radio personality Kristi Lee, who in January left WFBQ 94.7 FM Q95’s "The Bob & Tom Show" after 27 years, is launching a podcast.

"Kristi Lee Uninterrupted" will debut Tuesday with five episodes at once. Her guests will include names familiar to "Bob & Tom" fans, including recently retired co-host Bob Kevoian, former "Nick at Nite" host and public speaker Dr. Will Miller, Morty’s Comedy Joint owner Chris Bowers, and comedian and actress Jen Kober.

According to the Indy Business Journal, After this week's debut, Lee will produce a weekly 20- to 40-minute podcast, with guests to include former Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles. She hopes to begin shorter daily pieces with news updates and observations “in the near future.”

Listeners can stream Lee’s podcast on Kristileenews.com or through podcasting platforms such as iTunes and Stitcher.

Brad Shoemaker, whose Indianapolis-based Creative Zombie LTD podcast studio is producing Lee’s show, thinks the new podcast will have a considerable following due in part to Lee's notoriety from the nationally syndicated "Bob & Tom Show."

Some of the more popular podcasts Shoemaker’s studio produces get around 3,000 downloads a week.

“With someone like Kristi Lee, who has a national following, I could see it surpassing that by a long shot,” he said.

Lee, 55, told IBJ on Friday that she decided to start the show to get herself back in the public eye, although she said she is open to selling sponsorships once the show matures.

Lee's non-compete clause with WFBQ-FM 94.7 expired March 31.
