Brian DelpHost, Drive Time
Brian Delp has been a member of WBGO’s on-air team for more than two decades, most-recently as the long-time host of Jazz After Hours. He has emceed at nearly every major jazz venue in the New York City area and hosted a portion of New York City’s City Parks Foundation’s Charlie Parker Jazz Festival over several summers.
Brian grew up in Oklahoma City but dreamed of making to the "Big Apple." Spurred by a lifelong love of jazz, he hosted his first radio show on KOSU, Oklahoma State University's public radio station. From there, he went to Bismarck, North Dakota and the Prairie Public Radio network, spending almost a decade broadcasting jazz to the northern plains.
Brian is thrilled to now be hosting Midday Jazz, and loves sharing the music with WBGO's passionate listeners.
