Bio:

Chuck Whitaker here, born and raised in the Augusta, GA area! I’m passionate about everything outdoors, especially being around the water. I love swimming, kayaking, bicycling, hiking and of course spending time with family & friends.  My favorite things are happy dogs, kids playing, football, banana pudding…okay, I’m getting hungry. Favorite music: I like it all from Sinatra to Led Zeppelin to Bruno Mars and everything in between. I’ve always said “there’s only two kinds of music, good and bad.”

Hi, it’s Josh Gears, your morning host. I love watching automobile auctions on one of the many vast cable channels in the universe. Can’t afford any of these cars, but I like living vicariously through those who do! I also try to read every magazine I’m subscribed to; but since my wife and I have a new baby, that pile is getting bigger and bigger. I’d also like to state that I’m an experienced skydiver… but that would be stretching the truth a bit, since I am afraid of heights.

Hey there, I’m Scott Evans, Josh Gears’ on-air partner! My favorite type of music is probably categorized as “Hot AC”. I’m a huge Maroon 5, Rob Thomas and Sting fan. My original goal was to be a professional drummer, which I did for a while. But I realized I like the music business but didn’t like the life of a traveling musician. So, I’m one of the only people who got into radio for the “security and stability”. Thanks for listening!

Hello, Stan Phillips here, born and raised in Northeast PA, where there truly are four seasons of weather (though all seem to come with more clouds than other places), I wanted to do behind-the-scenes TV, but fell in love with radio the second I set foot in my college station. Fighting it was hopeless. I’ll be celebrating my 30th anniversary on the mic this year. It’s still lots of fun, I love helping others get through the workday. Thank you for letting me do that!

Bio:

Jason Jones here! I got my first taste of broadcasting doing PA announcing for my high school sports teams. Music has always been a huge part of my life and most memories I have of growing up are tied to whatever song happened to be playing on the radio at that time. I always try and live my life according to the immortal words of Willy Wonka “We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams.”
