Chasta is originally from Sulphur, Oklahoma; a tiny town in the heart of “red dirt country.” She graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interpersonal Communications. In college, she caught the bug for broadcasting while interning at The Katt in Oklahoma City. Her first on air shot there came as an overnight jock. After graduation, she made the jump to Morning Drive Co-Host on sister station K-Bull. Just a few months later she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her radio dreams. After a year long stint as a personal assistant to an A-List actor, Chasta returned to her calling as a broadcaster for MetroNetworks in L.A. While there she was featured as a news and traffic reporter on such stations as K-EARTH 101, The Wave, KSPN, KLSX Free FM, KFWB, and KABC. After spending 5 years in Los Angeles she decided to make a move to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area where she joined the “Lamont and Tonelli Show” as the female perspective and traffic reporter. When she’s not on the mic, Chasta spends her time traveling, working out, going to local rock shows, and hanging with her husband, son and dog.

About Morris Knight
Hey what’s up, Morris Knight here – total California guy from day one! Raised in San Diego, finished up high school in Sacramento where I started my radio career in 1990 at alternative rock station KWOD 106.5. Soon after, I scored my first full-time radio job in Stockton at 97.7 KWIN which then led me to the Bay Area in 1997 where I’ve been on the radio ever since! Music is my life – for real! I’m also a songwriter, musician and recording artist. In fact, I recently released a full-length, self-produced album called Dawn Of Eros and just a few months ago I released my new song and music video called “Thank You.” But I can’t help it, gotta keep the music going so I also play bass in a couple of local rock bands! Yep, my passion for music takes on many forms – even on TV. Sunday evenings is a blast where you can see me as host of KOFY-TV Dance Party! And that’s what’s up! See ya on SoundwavesTV!
