Tom and Curley

John Curley is waking up early for Seattle’s Morning News

No longer will John Curley be with you while you brush your teeth in the evenings. Instead, he’ll be there when your alarm goes off in the early morning hours.

John, who seems to have a story for every occasion, is the new host of Seattle’s Morning News effective Monday Oct. 22.

“My goal every morning is to make sure anyone listening gets to work feeling a little smarter and a little happier,” said Curley. “I want our show to be as necessary as that second cup of coffee in the morning. Tea drinkers are welcome too.”

John Curley will be joined by trusted KIRO Radio news anchor Ursula Reutin and co-host Tom Tangney.

John started as a TV weatherman in Colorado with no actual training or meteorological background. He eventually found himself in Seattle hosting Evening Magazine on KING-TV. He credits that 14 year experience with where he developed the skill to take most mundane moments of life and turn them into a hilarious story-telling.

Not only does John coach his son’s pee wee football team and make big decisions on the Sammamish City Council, he’s also a sought after auctioneer. He Googled “talking jobs,” paid $36.50 for a Ralph Wade CD “Auctioneering My Way,” and began practicing his fast talking skills. He hasn’t shut up since.
