Before landing in radio, Heidi Harris worked as a lounge singer, TV host and in customer service for a casino. All her life, friends and family urged her to give radio a shot because, well, she likes to talk. That advice ultimately led to the Heidi Harris Show on KDWN (720 AM, 5-9 a.m. weekdays), which draws more than 20,000 listeners between 5-9 a.m. weekdays, and put her on Talker Magazine’s list of “most influential radio hosts” five times.
