Annie Minoff is co-host and producer of Undiscovered. She also plays the banjo.

Her first run-in with radio was as an undergrad at Columbia University, where she covered the New York arts scene for the universe’s best radio station, WKCR-FM (“Sit Back and Dig the Shellac”). She couldn’t major in radio, so she earned a B.A. in American Studies.
