Morning News Anchor
Michelle Marques has been working in radio since 2000, beginning her career in Seattle at KMTT 103.7FM The Mountain. She joined our local group of radio stations in 2004 as a traffic reporter and DJ on our sister station, Froggy 92.9. Soon after joining the team, Michelle became indispensable to the operations at KSRO, quickly taking on roles as Morning News Producer, Reporter, Promotions Director, Morning News Co-Anchor and fill in host where needed. Michelle is passionate about the local community and takes pride in hosting our Public Affairs program, Sonoma County Focus. Her calm demeanor during coverage of the October 2017 Fires helped keep people safe, and she was a vital member of team coverage during subsequent fires, including solo-anchoring the harrowing, overnight mass evacuation of nearly 200,000 people during the 2019 Kincade Fire. Amaturo Sonoma Media Group was proud to promote Michelle Marques to News Director and Morning News Anchor in 2021. When not at the station, Michelle enjoys drawing in her sketchbook, dissecting the plots of Marvel Movies, and time with her husband and friends. She illustrated and self published her first children’s book, “What Makes You Smile As Big As The Moon?” in 2020.
Morning News Co-Anchor
Larry Olson has been all over the Bay Area radio scene for the past decade working at stations like KGO, KNBR and KFAX. When he’s not filling up Michelle’s coffee cup in the morning, he is dutifully attending to his wife and their three very well behaved kids. After all that, if there is any time left over, he likes to takes naps.
Morning News Producer
A Sonoma State University Graduate in Communications, Daniel Trucios produces the Sonoma County Morning News with Michelle Marques. He’s been part of the team since 2014, producing and reporting on a wide range of stories from large fires to crime to county fairs. You can also find him on the mic with daily newscasts and weather reports.
Morning News Film Critic
He’s a down to Earth guy, that’s why Chris Bollini is called The Blue Jean Critic. He contributes to the KSRO morning news every Friday with reviews of the latest movies. He’s been a film fan from a young age; his father, looking for a little peace and quiet, would treat him and his brother to many afternoons at the movies. From Disney to Chuck Norris, the trio saw everything. After earning a Bachelors of Arts from UC Davis in Human Resource Management, Chris returned to school taking film courses at San Francisco State University and College of Marin. Later, he started working in television at Marin 26, KFTY-50, KPIX 5, and currently, at KOFY-TV. In addition to KSRO, he can be seen reviewing films on KOFY-TV as well as hosting a program special called “Quick Takes” which focuses on film interviews, reviews and behind the scenes features. He is proud to be a member of the BFCA, Broadcast Film Critics Association and hopes that he can give movie goers a little insight on new films that they may find enjoyable and entertaining.
Morning News Financial Correspondent
Steve Reuter has been providing financial market updates to KSRO’s morning listeners since 1987. He delivers updates on the important financial news of the day twice hourly at 12 and 42 minutes past the hour. Steve is a 40 year veteran of the security industry and has spent the last 21 years at Merrill Lynch where he advises clients and their families. He is an active Rotarian and is currently on the board of directors of the Elsie Allen High School Foundation. He lives in Santa Rosa with his wife, Lee Ann and has two adult sons and three grandchildren.
Web Editor/Promotions Director
Originally from San Francisco, Jeff has called Sonoma County home since 2004. Upon graduating from Cardinal Newman in 2011, he took off for Chaminade University of Honolulu in Hawaii before ultimately getting his BS in Communications from the University of Phoenix—where he now jokes he has the paperwork to match the skill. Jeff says his interest in radio stems from local and national sports talk shows that he’s listened to over the years and hopes to have his own one day. He loves a good joke or a fun fact, so always be on the lookout for one of those. And when he’s not on the radio, he’s probably working out, podcasting, enjoying a beer with friends, tweeting out sports takes or catching up on the latest Netflix release with his dog Dee.
