The Morning Show with Diane Jones

Diane Jones - KLPW Radio

The Morning Show with Diane Jones, featuring "Off the Cuff"

You can catch Diane on the KLPW-AM All Talk 1220 Morning Show from 8:15 to 10 weekday mornings. Wake up to her daily commentary on Off the Cuff: The Radio Edition, a 10-minute take on just about anything and everything, weekdays at 6:47 a.m. and 5:18 p.m. Selected Off the Cuffs are available on demand online. It’s a Midwestern mom’s no-nonsense viewpoint from the “other” Washington.

From the moment she spoke her first word, Diane has been outspoken about what she thinks. What landed her in the principal’s office back in grade school ended up spawning a radio career in her 40’s. Whether the events are going on in Washington, DC or Washington, MO, Diane stays on top of the facts to make sure hers is an informed opinion. An open-minded politically independent conservative, she welcomes healthy debate and believes civility in such debate is sorely lacking on the airwaves and in this country.

A 1984 Notre Dame business administration graduate, Diane wears many hats—on-air host, manager, reluctant techie, sales--and has a wide variety of interests ranging from being a political junkie to being a die-hard, never-say-never Irish football fan, and everything in between. Her favorite hat, far and away, has been and always will be being a mom. Her first listener was her husband, who has encouraged and supported her radio career from day one.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 4 days ago

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
