Kelly Monson




Kelly Monson has been the morning host on Now 97.9 for the past 20 years, dating back to when it was another format and called itself something else. But he’s still here because he seems to be the only staff member who can wake up at 4:00 a.m. and instantly start talking coherently.

Kelly loves music. And radio.

He attended the U of U and supports Utah athletics in many ways, including owning front row season gymnastics tickets for 36 years.

He is dad to a gaggle of fantastic girls and lives in the 9th and 9th neighborhood of Salt Lake City, just a few blocks away from where his 4th-great-uncle built one of the first homes here in 1847.

Kelly is one of Utah’s favorite veteran broadcasters and brings a casual, comfortable style of musicality to the 6-10 am show on Now 97.9!
