Rick Koshko

Rick Koshko

Rick Koshko lived the first half of his life in southern Illinois, then moved to Ottawa early in his broadcasting career. His first thoughts of broadcasting as a career occurred to him at age five–when it was bed time and he realized the guy on the radio didn’t have to go to bed yet. Some irony: for most of the time he’s worked in radio, Rick has had to get up very early in the morning to be on the air, sometimes in addition to being up late at night like he wanted.

Rick is a graduate of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s broadcasting program. He speaks Esperanto, likes astronomy (SkyCaramba), and makes a hobby of photography.

Ethan Kruger started his broadcasting career in college after realizing that he liked hearing himself talk a little bit too much. After a brief stint of spinning records at Eastern Illinois University’s student FM station, Ethan realized his love for reporting the news. He loves where he works and is always excited to discuss what’s happening in the community. Ethan sees it as a privilege to serve the good people of LaSalle County through broadcasting.

Ethan likes board games, the outdoors, and watching all the different versions of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.
