Tyler Scott is the weekend afternoon host at Michigan Radio, though you can often hear him filling in at other times during the week. Tyler started in radio at age 18, as a board operator at WMLM 1520AM in Alma, Michigan, where he later became host of The Morning Show. He studied political science and graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in 2016.
When he’s not trying to find a good story to listen to or read, Tyler especially loves listening to a wide range of music, from contemporary rap to Dad Rock and Joan Baez, even a little bit of older country (absorbed during his early days in radio). Tyler’s a big football fan – Go Blue! He loves visiting Michigan’s many gorgeous state parks, and writing amateurish poetry. Continue reading “Tyler Scott | Weekend afternoon host”

Kate Wells has been a reporter at Michigan Radio since 2012. Her reporting at the station runs the gamut, from the wrongful conviction of a 14-year-old boy in a quadruple homicide, to refugees building new lives in this state, to how swing voters helped Donald Trump turn Michigan red. For the past couple years, she’s been covering the Larry Nassar case.
Kate’s work has been featured nationally on NPR and shows like Marketplace. Her reporting has also been recognized with awards from numerous news organizations, including the Michigan Associated Press, National Association of Black Journalists and the Association for Women in Communications.
She and her husband live with their infant son in Ann Arbor, and are probably too emotionally invested in college football.
