Kim Iverson ((1980-03-28)March 28, 1980), also billed as Kim Iversen, is a nationally syndicated American radio personality best known for United Stations Radio Network nightly syndicated program "Your Time with Kim Iversen" and Premiere Radio Networks nightly syndication, "The Rendezvous with Simon and Kim".

Radio career[edit]

Kim started her radio career in college when she became interested in radio and obtained internships at KDVS and KDND.[1] After college Kim took a job as Promotions Coordinator for KWOD (defunct) in Sacramento. At KWOD Kim started doing On-Air weekends for "106.5 KWOD Alternative". After a brief stint in television, Kim returned to radio for more intellectual and creative freedom. She worked as a co-host for the morning show "The WAZY Wake-Up Crew with Big Jake and Kim Iversen" at WAZY-FM in Lafayette, Indiana. She then moved to Champaign, Illinois in 2007 to host her own show "Kim Iversen Mornings" at WQQB.[2] Kim left the show in 2008.[3]

Kim's most notable radio work began in April 2008 with "Your Time with Kim Iversen". Kim made the move from a morning program to a night program when Entercom offered Kim her own syndicated night music and talk show based out of KAMX in Austin, Texas. The show was heard on the FM dial in various markets including Minneapolis, MN, Denver, CO, Portland, OR, Indianapolis, IN, Kansas City, MO, Nashville, TN, and many others. Kim, then 28 years old, became one of very few female hosts in syndication.[4] "Your Time with Kim Iversen" was a talk radio program primarily oriented toward women. Described as ‘a magazine on the radio’ the show was interactive and invited listeners to phone in with questions and comments about the various topics. The show also allowed listeners to call in for advice from Iversen about their love lives, though Iversen never cited herself as an expert.[5] In addition to taking listener calls, Kim regularly interviewed celebrities and experts. As of 2012, "Your Time with Kim Iversen" is on hiatus.[6]

In January 2013 Kim was invited to guest co-host Loveline alongside Mike Catherwood & Dr. Drew Pinsky for a week.[7]

Iversen is currently the co-host of a Premiere Networks syndication, "The Rendezvous with Simon and Kim" which premiered in June 2013 on satellite XM 244, iHeartRadio America's Talk and KTMY in Minneapolis, MN.[8] The show is an intelligent relationship and sex talk program targeting women. The Rendezvous can be heard M-F evenings on various FM stations in cities across the country including Chicago, Illinois, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Miami, Florida, Seattle, Washington, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tampa, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana amongst others.

As of June 2014, the show is heard nightly on Mix 106 in Philadelphia.

Television[edit]

Although Kim's greatest success is in radio, Kim also has experience in television. Kim moved from Sacramento to New York City in 2006 and freelanced as a news reporter for News 12 Networks and as a VJ for Concert TV.[9]

Iversen was a semi-finalist and placed in the top 10 of the Live! with Regis and Kelly Women of Radio Co-host Competition in 2010.[10] She also makes television appearances on HLN (TV channel) and "Prime News with Vinnie Politan".[11]

Personal life[edit]

Born and raised in Boise, Idaho, Kim's mother is a Vietnamese refugee and her father is American of Danish ancestry. A graduate from UC Davis with a BA in Philosophy and a minor in Music Performance, Kim is an accomplished musician and jazz drummer.[12][13] She is an avid snowboarder and surfer, is a volunteer for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization and as frequently noted in the program is single.[14]

Other[edit]

Kim was a semi-finalist in Maxim '​s 2013 Hometown Hotties Competition [15] and was named by Austin Monthly magazine as one of Austin's most beautiful women.

In 2011 Iversen hosted the Austin Fashion Week awards show.[16] During the show Kim also walked the runway for Linda Asaf's Collection.[17]
