DANNY KRAMER is one of the best-known radio personalities in Utah and has been entertaining the state and beyond since arriving in Salt lake in the 70s. He began his career in Savannah Georgia and ultimately owned part of a radio station after his college days. He spent two years in the Navy and served in Armed forces broadcasting in Alaska and then in Alameda/San Francisco in 1969 and 1970. Danny came to Utah to go to Graduate School at the U of Utah and began his broadcasting career here at KSL Radio where he was the ratings leader in Afternoons for over 13 years, and then moved to Afternoon drive at KALL radio from 1985-1990. In the last 20 plus years he has had two Television shows and most recently had been the afternoon personality on KDYL radio. His dream has been to be involved with doing the radio show that he knows his listeners crave and do what he does best in Television, which is relating to guests and his audience. He has extensive experience in being a spokesman for hundreds of advertising clients and his listeners and viewers have always felt that they can trust him. He has also had a travel club, which includes two trips with listeners each year and has sold out all of those each time they are announced and will continue that with listeners and viewers with his new venture. Having the ability to do his radio show along side some of his long time radio partners, and have the shows simulcast on TV and on mobile devices is something that isn’t done anywhere else. This exciting new partnership with KPDR TV and the streaming of audio and video programs, as well as the TV channel will aggressively maintain contact with so many public service groups who need publicity. It will also connect with the advertisers who need the longer form format to talk about their products and services. It is going to be the perfect media platform and will be offered on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week. Danny will be doing the afternoon drive show (3-6pm) so join him and his partners to enjoy your favorite music and personalities only on KPDR TV and live streaming around the world.
Mark & Gayle Van Wagoner have been married since 1971 and “grew up” in radio together. Mark developed his radio style at KSL radio during the seventies and eighties, while Gayle took care of their children, Mark’s talent accounts, bookkeeping and hosting events with Mark, like The Children’s Miracle Network, Disney Days and more.
Mark & Gayle have always believed in being accessible to their listeners. They host travel events and have taken their listeners around the world, literally! They host dinner events and even had breakfast with them! They did their live morning show from the Little America Hotel every morning from 6:00 until 10:00am for 4 years!
Mark & Gayle started “Celebrate” on the Talk America Radio Network and had been picked up by 47 radio stations across the country. They continued working together with a music format on KDYL Radio for the past eight years.
Plus, they are award winning. Most recently from the Alzheimer’s Association of America, The Lifetime Achievement Award for their dedication to our Senior Citizens. In 2001, The Veterans of Foreign Wars flew Mark & Gayle to Milwaukee and in front of 10,000 Vets, presented them the Commander in Chief’s Gold Medallion for extraordinary service to our Nation’s Veterans.
They hosted the Patriotic Rally in the Salt Palace when The VFW came to Utah for their National Convention. They met president Bush at that meeting and even sang God Bless America with Tony Orlando for the 10,000 Veteran’s of Foreign Wars and their families. (We felt like Forrest Gump, meeting the President, again…)
Mark is a broadcast veteran with Nine Clio Awards, several Addy’s, R&R Magazine’s Top Ten. Gayle has always produced Mark’s shows, but Mark talked Gayle into joining him “mic side” on the new KDYL in 2000 and the audience loved her! From her “Fit Tip”, to her “What’s Working in the World” to the “Official Welcome”, her enthusiasm for life is contagious!
Mark and Gayle’s love and respect for each other, their five children, spouses and grandchildren is evident in their daily lives and at times, even contagious!
And like all of us, they continue to be extremely humbled by life and it’s challenges.
