Kenna Stewart


Hi, I’m Kenna and I have been at Premier Broadcasting for several years now!  I began as a part-timer in the mid 90-s just a few short years after the station went on the air!  I went full time in 2000 and wear several hats here at the station!  I am currently one third of The Morning Show, I also host the Café weekdays on KJ Country 102.3 and can be heard during afternoons on 979XFM!  In between times, I am the station’s Promotions Director and manage the Community Calendar events!  

I also hold the role of Mom and Wife!!!  Hard to believe my twins, Kent and Kayla, are in their mid 30’s!  I also found love again and reconnected with my old college sweetheart, Steven Stewart!  We actually got married in Nashville in 2015 while attending a Country Music Seminar!   Nashville will always hold a special place for us!!!  Steve and I also have the cutest little three year old boy --- Freddy!  He is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel!
