WKAR-FM local “Morning Edition” host Brooke Allen has announced that she is leaving the East Lansing NPR affiliate and rejoining WWJ-AM (Detroit). Allen’s last appearance on WKAR was March 12.
Allen joined WKAR in July of 2016 after serving as an anchor and reporter at WWJ-AM. At WWJ, her projects included “Second Chance,” a broadcast series that sought to provide those serving time an opportunity to turn their lives around; and stories revealing the tragic plight of victims of alcohol-related crashes, something that has also personally affected her family.
Before her first stint at WWJ, Allen served as a news and traffic reporter at a number of stations in Michigan and California, including KFI-AM, KOST-FM and JILL-FM.
Allen studied theatre and communications at Eastern Michigan University, and is a graduate of the Academy of Radio and Television Broadcasting in Huntington Beach, California.
