Ken Vincent

News Director

Ken Vincent is a veteran of public radio going back, oh, let's just say 30-plus years.   Back then, after short stints in commercial radio in his native state of Washington, he broke into public radio as news director and local Morning Edition host for public station KTOO-FM in Juneau, Alaska.  In the mid-1980s, he returned to Seattle and over the course of the next 25 years worked a news reporter, local program host, producer, announcer, editor, and program engineer for Seattle NPR station KUOW.  At, let's just say, a certain age, he happily fled Pacific Northwest weather to return to a place where he lived briefly when he was younger: Southern California.  Now here at 91.9 KVCR for the past let's just say 6-plus years, Ken has considered himself very fortunate to have a job with hours that allow him to bypass rush-hour commutes in order to report on rush-hour commutes.  Hear Ken Vincent do Inland Empire traffic, weather, news, and feature interviews weekday mornings on 91.9 KVCR's Morning Edition.  Hear, read, and see local, state, and NPR News and podcasts at kvcrnews.org

Even though overall water use is down across the state, Californians conserved less water in October than they did in September.  A state water official thinks he knows why.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has a report from Capitol Public Radio Network.

Most of the imported goods that come into the United States arrive through the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the biggest port complex in North America.  Southern California's coastal ports also handle a significant percentage of the exports that leave the U.S for abroad.  Much of that port cargo is processed for shipping in Inland Empire logistics centers.  John Husing, the Chief Economist for the Inland Empire Economnic Partnership and KVCR weekly contributor begins a series of commentaries on the importance of the Ports of LA and Long Beach to the Inland Empire's economy.
