First Take with Lando and Chavis
On Monday, August 27th, KUVO launches its exciting new morning show, FIRST TAKE with Lando and Chavis! KUVO/KVJZ’s new show features MUSIC and NEWS, every weekday from 6 to 8 a.m. Carlos Lando returns to the KUVO airwaves with the very best of JAZZ and BLUES, and Steve Chavis covers the important issues, conversations, news and in-depth stories from and about our community. With First Take’s local focus on content, KUVO is once again taking a leading role in public media.
“Bringing MUSIC back to the early mornings is huge for KUVO’s listeners,” says Carlos Lando, COO and Program Director. The music will be spiced up with selections from KUVO’s popular weekend music shows like Latin Soul Party, Brazilian Fantasy, Afro-beats and oldies from Orgins: Orgy in Rhythm, some Gospel Train, and more.
Chavis, who joined the KUVO/KVJZ airstaff in April of this year, is eager to broaden his connections with local newsmakers. Chavis says “The radio dial is wide open for locally-based, non-commercial morning shows. With First Take, we now have the opportunity to explore more community concerns and diverse neighborhood perspectives.” Steve adds, “I’m looking forward to broadening the conversation by seeking out new, unheard voices and under-represented perspectives.”
