Ciara Hulet named local host of ‘Morning Edition’

KUER is pleased to announce Ciara Hulet as the local host of “Morning Edition.” Starting Monday, Nov. 7, she will replace Pamela McCall, who recently moved to the afternoons as KUER’s host of “All Things Considered.”

“I’m excited and honored to guide Utah listeners in the morning to help them better understand what’s happening in the state and the nation,” said Hulet.

 A native of Utah, Hulet studied broadcast journalism at Brigham Young University, where she won multiple awards and scholarships for her work. She then went on to help host and produce “Top of Mind” on BYUradio. She’s conducted hundreds of interviews with national and international experts and is passionate about helping people better understand the world and different perspectives. When Ciara isn’t on the radio, she works to fight eating disorders through volunteer work and hikes as many mountains as she can.

“We are excited to add another talented journalist to KUER’s news team,” said news director Elaine Clark. “Ciara’s experience in Utah media and her passion for sharing people’s stories will add more variety and richness to the listening experience of our state-wide audience.”

With Hulet assuming her new role, host Bob Nelson, who has been filling in on “Morning Edition,” will return to host KUER’s midday programming.
