Diane Maggipinto

Morning Edition Host

Diane Maggipinto is a longtime radio pro. She's worked in various states of sleep deprivation and around the country, in commercial and public radio newsrooms, and was a fill-in at KUER before stepping into the permanent Morning Edition host position in January 2015.  Early into her new gig, she was nominated for an award for sports reporting and, when not at work, enjoys participating, not spectating. Skiing, mountain biking, hiking, trail running and wrangling her two children and pair of black and white pets are activities she squeezes in when not on the air or recording voiceovers as a freelance voice actor.  She is also an emcee for non-profit organizations around the valley.
