Brent Michaels loves his job– from serving up requests during the lunch hour each day to hosting coverage of events like the Stagecoach Music Festival for KUZZ, he’s always up for bringing country music right to fans in Bakersfield and Kern County. Brent started at KUZZ in 2008 and worked weekend and fill-in shifts until taking over the night show in 2015. In 2016, he moved to middays and was promoted to Program Director of the station. He was also nominated in 2016 and 2017 for CMA On Air Personality of the Year. He has too many favorite artists to mention, but loves it all– from listening to the legends to discovering new artists.
Brent was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and is a graduate of the University of San Francisco. He has lived in Bakersfield since 2001 and enjoys spending time with his wife Julie, and two daughters Gracie and Molly. He is a big fan of the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers and is a TV junkie (his DVR tends to fill up quickly!). Brent is also active in the community volunteering for his church, and emceeing community events like the Bakersfield Relay For Life.
