Andy Petersen is an award-winning host and journalist who has filled about every role imaginable (except sales - he says if he had to sell for a living he would starve) here at our radio stations. Andy grew up listening to our sister station, AM 600 WMT, as he was born and raised on a farm in Wyoming, Iowa. He graduated from Midland High School in 2001 after being heavily involved in Sports, Band, Chorus, Speech and FFA. Andy started at WMT that summer as an intern in the Farm Department in the summer of 2001.
While working part-time here, he attended and graduated from Kirkwood Community College with a Media Degree, and the University of Iowa with a Communication Studies Degree. As a Junior at Iowa he started covering the Hawkeye football team and became a part of the Hawkeye Football broadcasts, co-hosting the Hawkeye Huddle. After college, Andy garnered a full-time position with WMT hosting the Evening Edition, then he moved to What's Happening before taking over the Morning Show from 2006-2011. Now, Andy gets your day started with the best country music and entertainment on KKSY from 6-9 am before running down the hall to host WMT's Expert Hour from 9-10 am. During his free time, Andy enjoys spending helping out on the farm, playing cards and sports, and of course rooting for his Hawks!
