Senior News Editor

I grab news in the morning, check the papers and the wires, call sources and take a big gulp of coffee,” says Quinn Klinefelter. “That’s how I start the day.” Quinn joined WDET in 1998 after working with the British Broadcasting Corporation, National Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Radio where he produced and hosted news and current events shows. He has been on top of the news for nearly a decade and honored for it by the Wisconsin Broadcasting Association and the Robert F. Hyland/CBS Radio Award for feature reporting for nearly a decade. Klinefelter was literally on top of the news in 1996 when he interviewed then-Senator Bob Dole and stepped on his feet during the Dole/Kemp run for the Presidency.
