About Me

Kurt lives in Marquette with his wife Abbey and son Graeme, and can’t imagine living elsewhere. He was born in Marquette and has been a Yooper his whole life. Kurt hosts Classiclectic, the weekday morning classical program and he also produces and hosts Peninsula Performances, our local concert series program. He also launched the new music program The Shuffle with Kurt Hauswirth in January 2021.

Kurt presents local arts and culture features and interviews with musicians, composers, and authors. He’s the one to contact to schedule an interview, and he also assists in training student on-air board operators. He loves spending time with his family, writing and producing his own music, reading, running, and listening to any music that catches his ear.
