MEET THE CAST
Bert Weiss, morning radio show host for the nationally syndicated “The Bert Show” has been a very influential figure in Atlanta since moving here in 2001. Continuously voted Atlanta’s number one morning radio show, Bert and his co-hosts strive to bring morning listeners a blend of lifestyle advice, national entertainment news, celebrity interviews, humor and on-air community for the past 12+ years.
Along with his well-respected career in radio, Bert is very involved in philanthropy. Shortly after moving to Atlanta, Bert started his own non-profit, Bert’s Big Adventure (BBA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families and continues to support them with year-round programs. Since the beginning of the organization, Bert’s Big Adventure has grown in popularity with more than 160 families across the U.S. participating in this magical opportunity.
Bert has been recognized for both his outstanding career and philanthropy with awards such as the 11 Alive Community Service Award and the Top 100 Most Influential Atlantans.
When Bert is not working on the show or spending time organizing BBA activities, he is the proud father of two sons, Hayden and Hollis, who continuously make him laugh.
Co-host & Entertainment News Director
Hey! I’m Kristin and I’m a proud member of The Bert Show. I love that my job is I get to laugh and joke around with my friends every day on the air. While we make sure to have fun, we don’t shy from tackling the tough topics. It’s always important to feel connected to our listeners, who we consider family.
I’m a graduate of the University of Kentucky, which of course make me a Wildcats fan through and through. Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, I’m southern in my roots and appreciate good hospitality and a perfect glass of sweet tea.
Coming from a military family, (my brother is a Marine and my father is a Vietnam Veteran), I will always support the men and women of our Armed Forces. I’m also a big supporter of rescue shelters thanks to my two dogs, Parker Jones and Leeroy Brown. The unconditional love from a dog simply makes life more joyful.
I’m newly married and my husband has been committed to my craziness for 10 years. When are we having kids? Trust me, when we do, you’ll be the first to know. We share everything on The Bert Show. And I mean everything.
A self proclaimed TV junkie, my DVR is always filled with “Real Housewives” or “Dancing with the Stars” episodes. That’s on top of the other umpteen million shows I watch. It’s nice to escape to the entertainment world on a daily basis by delivering the Entertainment Buzz. I enjoy getting caught up in the fashion and the glamour of the stars, while not taking it too seriously.
In all my years in radio I’ve managed to be shocked by cattle prods, attacked by dogs, and tackled by rugby players. I’m a tough enough chick to where I can certainly hang with the boys and I’m extremely competitive. I attribute that to my high school basketball coach.
I still have a sensitive side, and being a part of Bert’s Big Adventure and raising funds for pediatric brain tumor research is what gives me purpose. I have a strong sense of family, friends, and female independence. And besides Johnny Depp, the only other thing that makes me weak in the knees is a fabulous pair of shoes. Which reminds me…I think I’m due for a new pair…
“Since I’m an open book you’ll realize I may be flawed, but I hope together we can learn how to be better people and laugh at ourselves along the way.”
What’s up y’all? Do I sound Southern? I am really trying to right now… I am the newest addition to the greatest team in radio. Morning radio is absolutely my favorite thing to do in the world. It is such a blessing to be able to get up early and focus on making people laugh. My journey to the Bert Show has been an interesting one, with a number of jobs in different fields and in different cities along the way and I couldn’t be happier to be able to be where I am now.
I grew up on Whidbey Island in the state of Washington in the Northwest corner of the country, just about as far away from the South that you can get… Literally and figuratively. I grew up on a farm in the woods that raised horses, pigs and chickens and I have two younger brothers who helped me break just about every bone that I had in my body… Sorry mom and dad, we were expensive little guys and I am sure your health insurance deductible was ridiculous.
I went to college in southern California where I was supposed to play basketball, but instead I mainly worked on making my teammates laugh at jokes while sitting on the end of the bench. Oh, I was also missing slam dunks in practice, which is a skill. After I graduated from college, I started working in special education and with at-risk youth in foster care in Seattle, WA. I also began performing stand up comedy every night and soon after started touring comedy clubs and colleges across the country. After Seattle, I moved to Boston to get a master’s degree in social work with an emphasis in legislative advocacy… Oh and also to tell jokes in comedy clubs until the wee hours of the morning. No matter what career I am in though, a huge piece of my heart is always in fighting for at-risk youth and people with disabilities.
After Boston, I moved to Los Angeles where I did a bunch of comedy shows, hosted radio and did some TV stuff including making appearances as a stand up on AXS TV’s Gotham Live, Nickelodeon’s Nickmom’s Nite Out and Laughs on FOX. I was also a cast member on MTV’s prank show Money From Strangers… I also lived in a bunk bed for a while in a studio with my brother who is an actor because that is what is called “living the dream” aka broke.
Now I live in Atlanta with my dog Moxie, who I completely don’t look like a weirdo walking given that I am 6’4″ and she is the size of a cat. I have an apartment that has a pool and I have already found out the hard way that winters in Atlanta mean that the pool is just for looks and that hypothermia is real. I look forward to getting to hang out every morning and try to make you all laugh and sharing stories from my life.
Operations Manager & Syndication Executive Producer
“I’m the mom of The Bert Show crew. I make sure all of the Ts get crossed and the Is get dotted behind the scenes to keep the show running smoothly.”
“I keep The Bert Show running smoothly each morning. I love to over-share my vast movie/TV/music knowledge, and I rock the mic each Friday with The Bert Show’s Weekly Wrap Rap (that is, when I’m not screwing it up).”
Social Media & Web Director
“I’m the web & social media expert…and the resident know-it-all: if you have a question, I have an answer. Others might call me condescending, (ahem, Casshole) but honestly, they’re all just misguided.”
“I’m the girl who wears many hats! When I’m not screening your calls- I’m running the board, editing audio, interviewing listeners on the street, or partaking in a little On-Air shenanigans! So, if you call into the show, speak QUICKLY – because I’m a busy lady!”
I’m the 26 year old guy behind the scenes manipulating audio and am occasionally awkward on the air. I started as an unpaid intern and worked my way up to the audio producer role. I majored in Justice and Policy Studies and was two credits shy of double majoring in Theatre. Lastly, I am an avid music, film, and sports guru.
“Traffic Reporter and Deep Bass On Your Speakers. I am honored to wake up with you in the morning and to be a part of the amazing Bert Show! Have a request? Holla at me!”
