We might be a little biased, but we have an AMAZING crew here at KFI. They are the hardest working people in radio.
From those you hear on-air regularly to those behind the scenes, there's a lot of moving parts to what makes up the ultimate final on-air product and their work is invaluable. Without them, KFI wouldn't be KFI!
So each month, we present one of these amazing and dedicated employees with the KFI Employee of The Month honor to recognize them and to give you a little more insight into those that bring you the KFI you love each day, and the best part is that these winners are chosen by their peers!
Each Employee of the Month receives a few fun prizes, a certificate, an official award, will be featured in an on-air promo and their name will be enshrined on a perpetual plaque that will be located in our building.
So, we'd like to introduce you to KFI's Employee of the Month for October is....Victor Wright!
Victor joined the KFI team back in February of 2019 as a producer. It wasn't long before we tasked him with producing the Daily Dive podcast. He's done an amazing job working with Daily Dive host, Oscar Ramirez and continues to be a huge support for any KFI show that needs a little extra help.
Here's what some of Victor's co-workers had to say about him:
"Kind of quiet at first, but get him talking and he's freaking hilarious."
"Hard working, easy going, constantly being recorded or annoyed by Morgan, he doesn't let it phase him at all."
"He works so hard!"
"He has a great attitude every time he's in the office."
"One of the calmest people I've ever seen, but don't let that fool you, he's a dedicated and hard worker with a quick wit."

Homemade chicken noodle soup and cold beer.
