A Detroit-area native, Kristin Penrose (KP) was raised in Lake Orion, Michigan (with a 7-year detour in Tampa, Florida). KP comes from a family of six kids—and she wouldn’t have it any other way. As a music fanatic, working in radio was a no-brainer for KP. Growing up, you could find her playing acoustic guitar, performing in local theatre, and editing footage for her high school’s television production program. KP graduated from Oakland University with a B.A. in Public Relations & Strategic Communication with a minor in Business and is thrilled to be a part of the morning show. You can listen to Broadway in the Morning with KP, Monday through Friday 6-10 am on Hits 106 KHQ.

Outside of radio, this former Miss Michigan pageant finalist enjoys HITT workouts, refurbishing old furniture, lake life, country music, long-boarding, and drinking plenty of margaritas.
