Donna Apidone

Morning Edition & Classical Host

Donna Apidone has been addicted to radio since the age of 14, when she visited a family friend at a Cleveland radio station. "From then on, I was hooked." After working in commercial radio and corporate public relations, Donna discovered the joys of public radio. She has been an announcer and fundraiser at public stations for more than 20 years.

Donna came to Capital Public Radio in 1998 and has hosted Morning Edition since 2001. Since early 2009, she has also hosted the midday show on The Classical Station as well as broadcasts of California Lectures. She appreciates the opportunity to connect with the audience.

She serves on the board of directors of a national animal rescue organization and an interfaith organization. She enjoys her volunteer work as a certified life coach and seminar facilitator.
