For the past five years, veteran news personalities LaDona Harvey and Ted Garcia have helped San Diegans start their day with breaking news and the information important to their world. With both under multi-year contracts, listeners can be assured that LaDona and Ted will be there with their trusted presentation of news, weather, traffic and information uniquely designed for San Diego for many years to come.
San Diego’s Morning News also features Real Time Traffic reports with Kevin Dean, up to the minute Business News with Robert “Sully” Sullivan and of course the award-winning KOGO News reporting team.
“I am delighted to continue to be a part of the News Radio 600 family,” said Harvey. “It has been an honor to be a part of this team and the company since 1998. I look forward to many more exciting years at KOGO!”
Harvey has been a respected voice on San Diego news radio for more than 20 years covering a wide range of important San Diego stories like the devastating wildfires in 2003 and 2007. She has received a number of awards, most recently honored with a “Gracie” for her radio feature, “I am NOT grateful, I am qualified!”
Prior to the move to mornings, LaDona hosted a popular midday talk show on KOGO for several years.
“When we re-launched Newsradio 600 KOGO, it was clear that LaDona had the versatility needed to shift from a popular local news-talk host to become a strong morning news personality without missing a beat,” said KOGO and XTRA 1360 Program Director, Brian Long. “LaDona and Ted Garcia together every morning share a chemistry that connects with San Diegans and serves to entertain and inform KOGO listeners every weekday morning.”
