Colleen Bailey toured her first radio station at age 17 in the hopes of becoming a lowly, unpaid intern. The station never returned her calls, sending her spiraling into a dark void of retail jobs and newspaper ad sales that went on far longer than could be considered humane. After 12 years of waiting, Colleen finally got behind a microphone and was, for some reason, trusted to do live radio (suckers).
As co-host of the Get Up Gang, Colleen has learned that there’s a four in the morning now (when did they start doing that??), and that there’s no greater joy in the world than making people laugh.
She lives in Anchorage with her husband and her dog, who has finally trained Colleen to open the treat jar on command. She’s a Capricorn who doesn’t believe in astrology, but she does believe in Batman. You can catch her live weekday mornings from 5a-10a and Sundays from 12p-4p.
