KJZZ Adds "Live Wire" To Saturday Evening Line Up


KJZZ has Live Wire!

"Live Wire!" is a weekly variety show with a modern twist. It blends music from up-and-coming artists, original sketch comedy, spoken word, and interviews with writers, filmmakers, comedians and other thought-provoking people. Taped in front of an enthusiastic live audience at the 400-seat Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland's historic Alberta Arts District, hosted by Luke Burbank.

Luke Burbank is a stand-up comic, former NPR host and former producer. In addition to being the lead voice of "Live Wire!," he continues to host his highly successful podcast, "Too Beautiful to Live"

Luke's experience with NPR includes "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" in 2006 when he was a panelist and fill-in host, and the morning show "The Bryant Park Project" in 2007 which he hosted. Through various other media projects, Luke has also appeared on "This American Life," "All Things Considered," and "Morning Edition."
