MIX Mornings Hub - MIX 101.5

MIX Mornings

MIX Mornings with Kyle, Bryan and Sarah is ….. three people who live their lives as best they can, laughing at themselves when things go sideways. They try to find the fun in the everyday, and are their for each other when times get tough. Listeners and the community take center stage in all they do. Life is a crazy ride, and Kyle, Bryan and Sarah are their to take life as it comes with laughter, compassion and fun!


Kyle Smelser

Kyle is from central Indiana and arrived to the Triangle in the fall of 2016. Since his arrival, he’s become a big fan of the local restaurant and brewery scene. He is a graduate of Butler University and even though he is a Bulldog at heart, he has pledged his allegiance to ‘The Pack’ when cheering for our local teams.

Kyle has been married to his wife, Sarah, for seven years. Their universe centers around their 2-year-old daughter Sofia and taking care of their dogs — Boomer & Bentley. Much love to their senior pug ‘Bentley’ who recently turned 17 and is entering his senior year in high school.

Growing up in landlocked Indiana, Kyle loves to visit the beach and mountain towns that NC has to offer!
