Mornings with George Knight

Mondays - Fridays 6 AM to 10 AM

Mornings with George Knight is a morning show that’s different than other morning shows. Sure, we give you the things you need to start your day, like news, weather forecasts, traffic updates, and LOTS of music. But, what sets us apart is that, on THIS show, music reigns supreme. George may be the host, but his job is to add value to the music that he plays for you. It’s a morning show for TRUE music lovers. 

George now hosts the show from his remote basement studio just outside of Boston, which works out well – except when someone in his family feels the need to do laundry in the morning...

Supplying news updates on Mornings with George Knight is a rotating crew of very talented Emerson students. They bring a lot of talent to the table, and are an important part of the show. George - whose first full time job on Boston radio was as a newsperson on a morning show - serves as a mentor, and offers guidance on story selection, newswriting, and delivery. Since the show started, almost every news team member has gone on to work in radio or TV, with some landing jobs right here in Boston (Tori Bedford/Reporter for WGBH, Madison Rogers/Reporter and Anchor for WBZ).

Meet George and the News Crew:

🧑‍🎓The George Knight College of Musical Knowledge 🧑‍🎓

The George Knight College of Musical Knowledge is a chance to learn something about the music you listen to, and comes to you a couple times every morning thanks to support from Volante Farms in Needham. George gives you quirky tidbits of trivia about the artists and the songs we play, that you can then use to impress your friends.

What started as an on-air segment has grown into a virtual seminar series! On the last Thursday of every month, join George as he talks in-depth about a music subject of his choice. Your one-time donation will get you access to this live online lecture, plus a recording of the night to watch whenever you want.
