The Morning Show with Diane Jones

Diane Jones - KLPW Radio

The Morning Show with Diane Jones, featuring "Off the Cuff"

You can catch Diane on the KLPW-AM All Talk 1220 Morning Show from 8:15 to 10 weekday mornings. Wake up to her daily commentary on Off the Cuff: The Radio Edition, a 10-minute take on just about anything and everything, weekdays at 6:47 a.m. and 5:18 p.m. Selected Off the Cuffs are available on demand online. It’s a Midwestern mom’s no-nonsense viewpoint from the “other” Washington.

From the moment she spoke her first word, Diane has been outspoken about what she thinks. What landed her in the principal’s office back in grade school ended up spawning a radio career in her 40’s. Whether the events are going on in Washington, DC or Washington, MO, Diane stays on top of the facts to make sure hers is an informed opinion. An open-minded politically independent conservative, she welcomes healthy debate and believes civility in such debate is sorely lacking on the airwaves and in this country.

A 1984 Notre Dame business administration graduate, Diane wears many hats—on-air host, manager, reluctant techie, sales--and has a wide variety of interests ranging from being a political junkie to being a die-hard, never-say-never Irish football fan, and everything in between. Her favorite hat, far and away, has been and always will be being a mom. Her first listener was her husband, who has encouraged and supported her radio career from day one.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
