Colin O’Conor was born and raised on the West side of Cleveland, OH in a small town, Sheffield Lake. He later moved to Erie, PA to attend Mercyhurst University where he graduated with a B.S. in Social Work in 2017. 

After graduating Colin moved back home and began working for Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas in Cleveland.

He found his way to volunteer at KNOM Radio after spending a year serving for the non-profit City Year in the public schools of Detroit, MI. 

As a volunteer he enjoys DJing live for the KNOM’s Morning Show, reporting on public safety, and getting to know Nome and the wider community he serves.
