Pete Kaliner has been in broadcasting and journalism for most of his life – from the high school newspaper, college paper and radio station, to more than a decade as a reporter in Charlotte and then another decade as a radio host and podcaster in both Charlotte and Asheville. Pete believes in the power of the spoken word format to connect with people and help give clarity to complex stories. People will reward quality content, and Pete engages in entertaining and informative conversations with national, state, and local newsmakers. Pete and his wife, Christy, enjoy doing home improvement and DIY projects around the house, as well as gardening and entertaining. When Pete is not prepping for his show, he enjoys gaming, reading, watching stand-up comedy, documentaries, and cute animal videos.
