Jon Knowles

Morning Edition Host

Jon came to WUOT in 2022 as the local host for NPR’s Morning Edition. He previously served as a producer, reporter, and on-air talent for several stations within the former Citadel Broadcasting group of Knoxville. Jon’s later pursuits in communications were found in the civil service branches to include Anderson County Emergency Services, The Federal Emergency Management Agency, and most recently with the U.S. State Department in Iraq.

Outside of radio, Jon is a Nationally Registered and certified Flight Paramedic. When not on the air you’ll likely find him cheering on the Vols, flying a plane, or hiking/biking the many trails our region has to offer.
