Joe Lose

Monday – Friday: 6:00am – 10:00am

Originally from Minnetonka, Minnesota, Joe came south after graduation and headed to Mizzou. After a semester of journalism, he quickly learned was that J-School wasn’t for him. He dropped news, switched to communications, and never looked back. He always thought that being a radio DJ was the single coolest job ever, so he pursued his Associates Degree in Radio and TV Broadcasting and went to work for a small country radio station in Norfolk, NE.

Joe had bigger dreams, though, and never forgot about his favorite radio stations during his time at Mizzou. He returned to Columbia and launched his career with Clear 99, then KCMQ. He loves the fact that in radio, he gets to be an entertainer able to goof off and be ridiculous to the point that it helps his show succeed! But the most meaningful part is how he’s able to help listeners in big ways and small. Everything from simply making them smile to supporting local causes with radiothons and making a tremendous impact.

When he’s not working, you’ll find him in any kind of competitive league. He loves bags/cornhole and plays as often as possible. He also enjoys softball and sand volleyball, camping, float trips, snowboarding, shooting, concerts…anything outside. Or lifting weights inside.

Joe has won best commercial announcement series two years in a row for Just Jeff’s and Kretch’s Custom Exteriors from the Missouri Broadcaster’s Association…so he knows how to craft quality messages that listeners love!
