Candice Agree

Host of the Spanish Hour

Classical music lovers know broadcaster, live concert host and voice-over artist Candice Agree from her 30-plus years on the Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C. airwaves, most notably at 98.7 WFMT, 96.3FM WQXR, 104 WNCN-FM, and WETA-FM. Candice joined WFMT as a host and producer in July 2013, hosting weekend mornings, and now heard 4-7pm weekdays. In January 2014 she created WFMT’s early music program Baroque&Before, which she hosts and produces. Also she appears on WTTW-TV Channel 11 during membership drives.

She’s served as broadcast announcer for programs for many of the classical world’s most prestigious performing arts institutions: the Boston Symphony Orchestra, UBS-Verbier Festival Orchestra, and Music from Trinity Church Wall Street, among them. Candice has written and/or voiced special promotional packages for the SonyWonder, Classical Grammy Awards, Music of the Baroque, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Austrian Tourist Board, the Tourist Office of Spain, and the tourist boards of the Spanish regions of Andalucía and the Kingdom of Navarre.
