Karl “KB” Berner

Weekdays 10a-12p

Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Valparaiso.

What was your first job as a kid?
I slung papers for the Post Tribune at age 13.

What was your worst moment in radio?
Physically holding down a pop-up tent in a torrential thunderstorm so it wouldn’t blow away; that station event just barely finished before the storm hit, and I truly thought my co-workers and I might die that day!

If you weren’t working in radio, what would you be doing?
I’d be teaching or working in sports television in some capacity, I’m sure.

You and Steve Zana have done a lot of community theatre in the Region. Besides Steve, which of your Dawn Patrol co-workers would you most like to see in something?
Aside from having seen our Business Manager Rhonda Russ in a few productions, I’d like to see Scott Rosenberg and Laura Waluszko do a gender-neutral production of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple”, set in 2019, with Scott as Oscar and Laura as Felix (and with the way kids get named these days, I can definitely see “Felix” as also being a female name)!
