Ariele Jones To Host Morning Edition

Ariele Jones
Emily Bollinger
Music Director Ariele Jones is our new Morning Edition host.

We’re excited to share that Ariele Jones will be sliding into the host’s chair for Morning Edition starting Monday, April 26.

Ariele’s voice is a familiar one for WGLT and WCBU fans. She started out hosting jazz and blues programs on WGLT when she was a student at Illinois State University. Ariele joined the staff full time in 2020.

She’s most recently hosted All Things Considered each afternoon, as well as Center Stage and Highway 309. She is also our Music Director.

After six years as Morning Edition host, Jon Norton will get some sleep — but he’s not going anywhere. Jon, who is also our Audio Director, will step in as local host of All Things Considered.

Community support is the greatest funding source for WGLT. Donations from listeners and readers means local news is available to everyone as a public service. Join the village that powers public media with your contribution.

Ryan Denham is the digital content director for WGLT.
