About The Show

Rise & Wake Up! is a fun and vibrant look at all the news you need before you start your daily grind… or your “coffee” grind!

Join hosts CHIP MCNEELY and MARIANNE STAR as they serve up a steaming cup of morning cheer plus news, weather, traffic, household tips, sports scores, emergency wind warnings, and exclusive via satellite celebrity interviews!

Now you can get even more connected than ever before with a “first” in regional syndicated morning news: our very own Rise & Wake Up! internet web-site! We invite you to explore and go behind-the-scenes with news team bios, news headlines, and plenty of information about the WORLD WIDE WEB.

Since 1986, thousands of homes across the western United States have tuned in to watch the #2 regionally syndicated morning show in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and select media markets in Utah and Idaho. Broadcasting from Studio 22C in beautiful downtown Bakersfield, California, Rise & Wake Up is the perfect morning “blend” of news, fun, and sunshine to start your day!
