Danette (Danie) Alexander first came to KCUR in 2007 as an intern for Up to Date after completing her B.A. in Communications at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. After her KCUR internship was completed, Danie continued to spend her mornings assisting producer Stephen Steigman as a volunteer with Up to Date. Her radio experience also includes stints with public radio's New Letters on the Air as a broadcast engineer and on local public radio as host of a weekly overnight call-in show.
In December 2011, Danie started as a temporary on-air announcer and is now the regular voice on Saturday afternoons. In August 2012 she became the associate producer for Up to Date. For Danie, all the work and time has been worth it as she has seen her belief in the power of public radio confirmed.
Danette Alexander also holds a B.S. degree from William Woods University. Originally from Long Island, NY, she and her husband Steven Alexander live in Raytown when they’re not working on their future retirement property on Tablerock Lake.
