Geoff Emery

    Geoff Emery began his radio career while still a geek in high school in Salt Lake City, Utah and joined the KUZZ family in 1996. As an adult geek, Geoff’s done everything from afternoon drive, to producing morning teams, and even anchoring the news as a news director. Too numerous to mention, major career accomplishments include interviewing 50’s idol Fabian and sinking BoBo the obnoxious clown in the dunk tank at the Faire. Geoff came to Bakersfield in 1991 to play morning radio… It was the first real competition Steve Gradowitz ever had! Promptly getting his butt kicked, Geoff decided to follow in his Dad’s footsteps and go play Big Oil with Occidental Oil & Gas Corporation. He completed his career with Oxy at Elk Hills in Facilities Management and Administration having designed numerous facility remodels and upgrades.

    Geoff got to briefly enjoy his childhood dream, when he signed on as a conductor with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, while maintaining a part-time position at KUZZ. In 2001, Geoff joined “The Gradowitz in the Morning” as producer and co-host. Folks thought it was Steve’s way to staving off another attack to bring Geoff into the fold. If he’s not playing on the radio, Geoff is usually BBQ’ing something, including family events for our military men and women, or playing with trains. He also owns a recording studio, producing many of the commercials and promos heard on KUZZ and local TV. He’s announced PA for the Condors (and Fog). Geoff and his wife Valerie enjoy fixing up their palatial estate in classic and Victorian style (all 1100 square feet of it), chillin’ on the patio, camping, and annoying the annoying neighbors by playing Hank 3 music through the fence. Geoff & Val share the place with shih tzu’s Sir Wilbur Huckleberry, Ms. Dazee Bucket, Coton de Tulear’s Professor Frederick Von Dumbledork, and Princess Smiley Bear. Smoke, a stray Russian gray cat, has adopted the front acreage of the estate as her home, keeping an eye on the iguanas, giraffe, emu, polar bear, and lemur enclosures. They even have a special place where they keep a Merbabe and a Wizzy..
