Jerry Kenney

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.

Kathy and Gary Turnipseed have a lot of heart and passion for the work they're doing. They are two-thirds of the staff at Ruff Transport—an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization that helps bridge the gap for animals needing a ride to rescue facilities, and either foster or forever homes. They call these transports Freedom Rides and recently, the pair joined WYSO's Jerry Kenney in the WYSO studios to talk about the work they’re doing. You'll also hear about a show drive taking place and learn how you can help.

On today’s WYSO Weekend, Dayton Youth Radio, WYSO Curious and our occasional arts series, Culture Couch. Later in the program, you’ll hear about some local citizens who provide freedoms rides to animals in need, and up first, the next in our series Women's Voices From The Dayton Correctional Institution.
