Alisa Clancy

Program Director & Host of A Morning Cup of Jazz

As a teenager growing up in San Diego in the 1970's, Alisa Clancy first got interested in jazz while in Jr. High band (she played drums and piano) and has always fostered a nerdy interest in pop culture, the theater, classical music and film. She managed to combine all of those interests while in college working at stations WKYU in Bowling Green Kentucky during undergrad. school and then at WFDD at Wake Forest University, while working on a Master's Degree.

Clancy worked in professional theater for several years before moving to the Bay Area in 1987 where jazz and broadcasting moved to the solo spotlight. She is the Program Director at KCSM-FM and has been the host of the weekday gig of A Morning Cup of Jazz for more than twenty years.
