Coy Dugger

Coy began his radio career in 2016, after a close friend suggested that he should take an internship with KCUR over a similar offer from a local TV station. His pal's sage reasoning? Because Coy has "a voice for radio. And a face to match.” A producer, announcer, and all-around audiophile, Coy's favorite talk shows and news stories are the ones that explore the rich culture of Kansas City, the town he was raised in. Coy is also a fan of digital painting due to a deep-rooted aversion for paint stains. He lives on Kansas City's east side and knows how to properly pronounce "Sni-A-Bar" a feat few Kansas Citians can boast.
