MPR picks one of its own to follow Kamman on 'The Jazz Image'
Last update: October 05, 2007 -- 7:32 PM
Minnesota Public Radio looked within its ranks for a new host for its
Saturday night jazz program. *Maryann Sullivan*, who has done the jazz
calendar on *Leigh Kamman*'s "Jazz Image" for 11 years, will take over
as host, beginning tonight. Longtime jazz radio icon Kamman, who had
hosted the program on MPR since 1973, retired after last Saturday's
program. Sullivan will come up with a new name for the program, which is
broadcast from 9 p.m. to midnight on Saturdays.
Since 1996, Sullivan has worked as a host for classical and news
programs on MPR. She also has done many voice-overs for the radio
network, including the underwriting messages. She began her jazz
broadcasting career in the 1980s at KTWN-108 in Anoka. She went on to
host jazz programs on KTCJ and KBEM.
