Executives at 93.3 KGSR-FM didn’t have to look far to find a new midday host.

In fact, they didn’t even have to leave the building.

Emily McIntosh, who had been handling weekend duties at sister station 101X, can now be heard weekdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on KGSR. She’ll also serve as music director.

McIntosh fills the spot vacated by Kristen Kurtis, who left Austin after four years to host the morning show at WXPN-FM in her hometown of Philadelphia.

“Emily was the very first resume and tape I received,” KGSR program director Haley Jones said. “She gets Austin, she gets the brand and, most important, I know she’ll be a tremendous asset in helping to take KGSR to the next level.”

Before arriving in Austin, McIntosh kicked off her radio career while still a student at Kansas State University.

“KGSR already has a team of amazing veteran talent, and to be the newest addition to that team is an absolute honor,” she said.
