Danie Alexander

Producer, Up To Date

As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.

I first came to KCUR in 2007 as an intern for Up to Date after completing my B.A. in Communications at the University of Missouri–Kansas City. After my KCUR internship, I continued as a volunteer, assisting senior producer Stephen Steigman with the show. My radio experience also includes stints with public radio's New Letters on the Air as a broadcast engineer and on local public radio as host of a weekly overnight call-in show.

In December 2011, I became a temporary on-air announcer, eventually serving as the regular voice on Saturday afternoons.  In August 2012, I accepted the position of associate producer for Up to Date where I produced the award-wining weekly segment "90-Mile View." My current duties as producer for the program began in September of 2014.

I also hold a B.S. degree from William Woods University. Originally from Long Island, NY, I live with my husband Steven Alexander in Raytown when we’re not working on our future retirement property on Tablerock Lake.
