Senior Producer, Up To Date

As Up To Date’s senior producer, I construct daily conversations that give our listeners context to the issues of our time. I strive to provide a platform that holds those in power accountable, while also spotlighting the voices of Kansas City’s creatives and visionaries that may otherwise go unheard.

I have been a producer with KCUR's Up To Date since February of 2021 and have served as the show's senior producer since January of 2023. Previously, I spent one year at WBEZ, Chicago's NPR station, interning for their daily talk show "Reset." Prior to that, I worked as a reporter and All Things Considered host for WVIK, Quad Cities NPR on the Illinois-Iowa border.

In 2019, I graduated from Illinois State University, where I worked as a Morning Edition Producer for the local NPR station, WGLT, and served as the News Director at my college radio station, WZND. In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar and watching Chicago Cubs baseball. You can follow me on Twitter @wachzilson25 and email me at zach@kcur.org.
