Programming Assistant & On-Air Weeknights

Catalina Alers-Alers is the weeknight host on 97.9 KISSFM, co-host of the But First, Brunch podcast and TV correspondent for JTA’s Around Town series on Making Moves. She’s lived in Jacksonville for more than 20 years — grew up in Orange Park and graduated from the University of North Florida. A conversation with Catalina is a healthy dose of real talk on social equality, pop culture and laughs til you cry.

Coming from a really social Hispanic family and living in Turkey for five years molded Catalina’s curiosity for anything different – especially music and culture. Outside the studio, Catalina enjoys exploring the city’s ever-evolving food and cocktail scene. When Catalina and her friends get tired of hitting up the same spots in the urban core, they pack up the cooler and head to the beaches or one of the MANY hiking trails around Jax. She’s also obsessed with Netflix, beauty videos on YouTube and sweets. Follow her on social media @CatalinaOnAir.
