Former weekend host and reporter, Melorie Begay has rejoined WKAR Public Media as the station's new Morning Edition host.  Begay recently spoke with WKAR’s Sophia Saliby saying about her return, “What brought me back was that I missed being a host, really. I think there's something special about being the person who guides listeners through the news, and I think that's something that you might be familiar with. So no matter what's going on or what's happening, I like being a person who is a resource for others.” said Begay.

Before joining WKAR in 2022, Melorie was a multimedia journalist for KLCC-FM in Eugene, Oregon.

Melorie Begay has a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of New Mexico, where she interned at the local public radio station KUNM.  Prior to rejoining WKAR, she was a general assignment reporter at WGVU Public Media in Grand Rapids.

Begay adds, " “I think I'm up for the challenge. You know, I'd like to be someone who's calm, friendly, reliable and ultimately trustworthy, but I think that's something that takes time. So, I'm really excited to start or continue building that relationship with listeners.”
