WRVA-FM, 100.7 The River’s Kitty Kinnin to emcee 2012 Big Bad Ball
Raleigh, N.C. (August 21, 2011)–Kitty Kinnin, the longtime radio personality from WRVA-FM, 100.7 The River, will host A Sophisticated Soiree, the 11th annual Big Bad Ball on September 29, 2012.
“I have dealt with Hospice of Wake County personally and professionally,” said Kinnin. “Until you've been there with someone, you can't imagine the care and compassion this organization provides. Any one of us could be in this situation and I can't think of anyone better to shed light and comfort on this painful, end-of-life ordeal. I am honored to host this year’s Big Bad Ball.”
Kitty Kinnin began her career behind the mic at a rock radio station in Winston Salem, NC, WKZL-FM where she hosted and developed a 2-hour Sunday night special, “A Touch of Jazz”. After moving to Raleigh, Kinnin spent 12 years on WRDU-FM and converted her Sunday night jazz show into the Triangle favorite, The Sunday Jazz Brunch. She also narrated and hosted the documentary, “Diversity” and headed the PR/marketing startup campaign for The View on Water Street in Wilmington, NC. While her career has included TV, PR, narrating and hosting, Kinnin’s true love is reaching out to fans. Kinnin can be heard weekdays 6AM-9AM and Sundays 9AM-12PM on 1007.FM, The River.
Kinnin will join two of the Triangle’s most popular bands as they take the stage at the 11th anniversary Big Bad Ball. The Casablanca Orchestra and tHE.DESIGN will keep guests dancing into the early hours of the morning.
The Big Bad Ball benefits Hospice of Wake County and will be held Saturday, September 29th from 7p.m. – 1a.m. at the Capital City Club in Raleigh.
