The next time you’re in Seattle, crank up the radio and listen for Lisa Bergman, a longtime radio personality and pianist in North Central Washington. Classical KING FM — 98.1 on the radio dial — offered Bergman a job as an on-air personality middays, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., six days a week. She started Aug. 12.
On the radio, Bergman is known as the writer and host of “Exploring Music,” an award-winning program that reveals the unusual, and sometimes comedic, back stories to classical songs and composers. She’ll continue to host the two-minute program every night on Classical KING FM at 6 p.m.
Locally, Bergman is the director of adult piano retreats at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts in Leavenworth, where she was executive director until 2010. She was also a classical music host on KOHO radio for 10 years.
