Best Vocal Versatility

Beth Duncan

Beth Duncan
By day, longtime local broadcaster Beth Duncan is on the radio, reporting news and traffic; by night, she flexes her vocal muscles in a more sensual way: singing jazz. Wrapping her silky yet sturdy voice around standards like “’S Wonderful” isn’t entirely new terrain for Duncan—she once made her living as a singer—but she dropped out of music for a while before giving jazz a serious go. While broadcasting remains her bread and butter—you can catch her on 1380 KTKZ (AM), 710 KFIA (AM) and 103.9 The Fish (KKFS FM)—singing for her supper is what really feeds her soul.
