A tweeter-in-the-know whose feed is filled with upcoming concerts, sip-n-stitches, trivia and more has been named by The Current as the new host of the Duluth Local show.
Brittany Lind, who has thousands of followers as Ellipsis and EllipsisMN, debuts on the show that airs at 8 p.m. Sunday on 104.3 FM and 94.1 FM. It will be available for streaming at 2 p.m. Monday.
“I’m so excited,” she said. “I’ve wanted this job for three years and I finally got it.”
Lind, a co-founder of Femn Fest who is also involved with Lake Avenue Live and Duluth Superior Film Festival, has long been a northern resource for the radio station’s staff.
Program director Jim McGuinn said in a news release that they’ve been impressed with her passion and enthusiasm for the music scene.
“Her work in the local community to lift up the profile of local artists will continue and be amplified in this new role as Duluth Local Show host. We can’t wait to hear what she discovers and shares with listeners in Duluth and beyond.”
Lind said she applied for this job when it was first listed a few years ago and made it to the finals. The job went to Mike Novitski, who had worked at KUMD-FM.
Her plan: “I’m going to try and make sure female artists are featured, which is on-brand with me,” she said. “I’m going to play not only new artists, but dig back into Duluth’s music history and find the fan favorites. I’m doing throwbacks.”
Among her favorite bands right now: Big Wave Dave & The Ripples, Nude Colors, Ingeborg von Agassiz, Sarah Krueger, Rick McLean and more.
