Kerri Kasem, a multimedia personality, producer and writer, has anchored music, talk and entertainment programs for radio and television.
As an entertainer and the daughter of a reknowned celebrity, Kerri Kasem has lived more of her life in the spotlight than most of us. Unfortunately, recent circumstances put her private and very personal family tragedy on the front pages of the news this year. Her legal battle regarding the visitation and medical care of her father, radio icon Casey Kasem, has brought awareness and attention to a cause that many of us may face one day in today’s world of blended families.
She founded the Kasem Cares Foundation to establish and fight for the rights to have visitation and reasonable access to an ailing parent, especially when under the care and control of an uncooperative spouse or sibling.She is an inspiration and voice of many people going through challenging times. Through Kerri’s voice, leadership and team, she can help inspire and help change your life.
In February 2010, she joined Premiere Radio Networks for the launch of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. The nationally syndicated programs can be heard on over 100 Rock/Alternative music stations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Clear Channel Radio’s digital platform iheartradio and the 24/7 Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx channel on XM Satellite Radio (channel 164).
In addition to co-hosting Sixx Sense and The Side Show Countdown, Kasem co-hosts the syndicated The Mortgage Radio Show and co-hosted a real-estate show, Wealthbuilder Radio. She also anchors The Kerri Kasem Podcast with Ashley Marriott.
A motorcycle aficionado, Kasem writes and produces segments for ALO Magazine as their motor editor. Kasem previously served as co-host of the nationally syndicated Racing Rocks with Riki Rachtman for nearly seven years.
She has produced and hosted shows for MTV Asia, National Lampoon® and Sprint. Her credits include hosting, MTV USA and Asia, America’s Funniest Home Videos and Coming Attractions on the E! Network, FOX News, SiTV’s The Rub and UFC programs Ultimate Knockouts 3, Ultimate and Ultimate Knockouts for the UFC and SPIKE, as well as a motorcycle travel show for SPRINT called SEE America. She has also co-hosted mornings with Alan Stock on KXNT in Las Vegas and The Solomon Free Money Hour on Angels AM-830 and spent six years on 97.1 FM TALK in Los Angeles and has also been featured in dozens of magazines.
Kerri has an incredible passion for the foundation and is instrumental through her fans, network of friends and colleagues, to raise awareness about the foundation’s issues. Kerri, through her own very limited financial resources, is currently pursuing legal channels to obtain visitation rights to see her father, Casey Kasem, along with her brother, sister, and other family members.
