Your Host

Cary Harrison

Cary was spawned from the Mayflower and Abe Lincoln on his mother’s side and framers of the Constitution on the other. Cary is an award-Winning Public Radio host and Podcast designer for executive-level commercial, academic, and service-related industries.

As a former rock-n-roll news director, Cary Harrison created “Reality Bites”— satirical sound vignettes as the antidote to double-speak pop culture or political claptrap. Predictably, these thrust his morning show into first place and the features (later called “Reality Checks”) onto CBS radio and into national syndication. Still skillfully deploying humor, Cary maneuvers in the vein of serious investigative journalism while coaxing the best from celebrities and global thinkers.

It was no mistake that then President Obama challenged Cary Harrison to “now do something to make a difference in today’s radio”.

Broadcasting has taken him from top stations in Florida, Chicago, New York, and LA, including multiple national syndications and the pioneering of America’s first LGBTQ+ network morning show for SiriusXM’s, “OutQ”.

He then joined Air America, hosting a daily show in Los Angeles until later tapped by KPFK Public Radio for current morning drive.
