Jana Lee Ross

Jana Lee Ross

Classical Announcer

Jana Lee Ross is a lifelong pianist and vocalist with a repertoire that blurs the lines between classical music and jazz. Unifying these two art forms is the overall arch of her career as a performer, composer and broadcaster. Jana Lee worked her way up from the long night of the graveyard shift disc jockey to become Director of Music for Classical 88.7 KCME in Colorado Springs. Capping off her 20-year stay at KCME, she steered the launch of KCME’s sister station, Jazz 93.5, while still wearing her classical hat. Jana Lee has produced the weekly programs Ladies Who Lunch, which highlights the accomplishments of women in classical music, and The Bridge, which explored music and musicians that cross the bridge between classical music and jazz. You can hear her jazz alter ego on WFMT's nationally syndicated Jazz Network.

In addition to her broadcasting work, Jana Lee Ross has a thriving performance career. She is in demand as a pianist and vocalist, incorporating Bach, BeBop, Bill Evans, and David Bowie.
