Mid-Days with Kelli Gates

Kelli grew up in the suburbs just outside of Detroit driving family and friends crazy by singing along
to every song she heard on the radio and telling them every detail about the band and lead singer
whether they wanted to hear it or not! She moved from the Motor City of Detroit to a small town in
Kentucky while in high school and thought her life was over. But NO! She earned a degree in
Broadcasting from Eastern Kentucky University, began co-hosting a popular morning show in
Lexington while still in college and her vagabond radio life began. She eventually moved to Los
Angeles and landed as the “female voice” on the nationally syndicated Mark and Brian morning
show. This, along with time spent working at the Museum of Television and Radio in Beverly Hills,
allowed her to meet and befriend some of the biggest names in music, movies, and television. She
even met her favorite rock star, Rolling Stones “Keef” Richards…3 times! It is truly amazing she
didn’t get arrested for stalking.

Although the glitz and glamour were exciting, she found it was eventually time to leave “the big city”.
But you never know when some of her “famous” rock and roll friends will show up on during here
show on 105.5 The Bridge.

When she’s not immersed in radio and music, she spends time thinking about playing poker, playing
poker and making plans to travel to play poker. She’s won numerous tournaments, but is still aiming
for the “big one”!!!!
