Elaine Effort

Elaine first started at KQV in 1973, but took a six year break starting in 1977 to get married and have a family. KQV President and General Manager Robert W. Dickey convinced Elaine to return to KQV in 1983 on a part-time basis and once her youngest child started kindergarten, she came back full-time. Elaine got her start in broadcasting at the University of Michigan student radio station. Her first paying job was at WUOM in Ann Arbor. Elaine holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Master of Arts in Journalism, both from the University of Michigan.
