Host: Jonathan Wilde
KOSI 101.1 morning show host Jonathan was practically raised with a microphone in his face. He has been on-air since he was 15 years old. Born and raised in Arkansas he still knows how to “call the hogs.” Since escaping the state, he’s spent radio time in Dallas, Phoenix, Kansas City and Colorado Springs. Jonathan has now lived in Colorado for 20 years, which is longer than he did growing up in Arkansas. Spending the last 15 years in Denver, most of which was on country radio, Jonathan is a three-time winner of the prestigious “Radio Personality of the Year” award from the Country Music Association. His favorite radio memory was marrying “14 couples at 14,000 feet on top of Pikes Peak.”

Jonathan also spent several years behind the mic at Pepsi Center as the public address announcer for the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Crush, as well as filling in for the Broncos and Rockies. He has a freelance voice over business on the side and has been heard nationally on The Speed Channel, plus commercials for Transformers, McDonalds, Hot Wheels and more!
