“My first experience in radio was as an on-air performer in high school. A buddy of mine had built an illegal AM station in his basement. My partner Jonathan and I made a solemn vow that we were going to be partners and never work for anybody but ourselves for the rest of our lives. That was almost 20 years ago.”

Kelly Cole is the host of Lites Out, smooth jazz and soulful contemporary music.
The first day of my first job in radio, the Program Director told me he didn’t like my name (Belinda Cole) and suggested I change it or go home. The suggestions were Kitty Morgan, Kelly Morgan, Kitty Cole or Kelly Cole. 1st, I am not a Kitty, so Kelly Cole was born.
After years as the Music Director at KIFM, they switched formats and left the artists and their fans without a home in San Diego. So, Lites Out with Kelly Cole on 102.1 KPRi was born!
