Adrian Crookston is an announcer and fill-in host on weekdays whose voice you’ll also hear on the weekend. He grew up on the Palouse in Moscow, Idaho. After several semesters at University of Idaho studying theatre arts, he moved to Austin, Texas to play in a rock ‘n roll band. Several years later he attended University of Texas at Austin, where he completed his bachelor of science in radio, television and film.
Adrian loves the arts, particularly music and film. He’s a semi-professional accordion player and plays gigs regularly specializing in dance grooves and rhythms from Brazil and beyond. He loves writing and illustrating and hopes to one day have a children’s book or two published. Most importantly, Adrian has listened to public radio and watched public television his whole life and says he’s thrilled to be part of Northwest Public Broadcasting.
