joeg Joe GillespieJoe Gillespie hosts the KXNT Morning News, the latest step in a career in broadcast news that has taken him from coast-to-coast.  Joe has worked as a radio anchor, TV reporter and News Director from San Diego to New York City. When offered the opportunity to work for CBS Radio in Las Vegas and on their first FM News Station, Joe said, “how could I refuse?”

Joe says the keys to every story are the people involved in them, “Whether it’s the political official or police officer, ultimately they are just folks. People are the story and their stories are fascinating and we’re determined to tell them.”  The KXNT Morning News airs weekdays from 6am to 9am.
