KMFY Air Staff
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!
Favorite Song/artist There is no way I can nail down one.
Favorite Movie How about Favorite genre? I’ll watch any Movie with a sports theme. Bull Durham, Remember the Titans, Jerry Mcguire, Field of Dreams. I’ll watch any of these for the millionth time.

Favorite Actress Audrey Hepburn/Kathryn Hepburn. Anyone named Hepburn.
Favorite Food Any meal with seafood.
Favorite TV Show I’m a TV junkie. I’ll watch anything that’s on. Cooking shows, remodel shows, singing shows, you name it- I’ve watched at least one episode.
Favorite Sports Team(s) Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Lynx. Anything Minnesota.
Hobbies/Interests I love doing things with my hands. I sew, quilt, and knit. I’m working on the family tree, so there are probably very few cemeteries I haven’t been to, yet. I spend some time looking up and listening to family histories.
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!
Hi, I’m Bobbi Maxwell. I grew up in a family of 11! My dad was a home builder, so we moved quite a bit. Family has always been important, and my sibs and I stay very close. I have 2 beautiful, talented daughters who have just started their careers in nursing and finance. I’m a newlywed!! My husband, Steve is my sounding board and best friend! My furry friends are a yellow Lab (Marley) and Mane coon cat (Kit Kat). I love shopping, gardening, concerts, sporting events, dinner with friends, and SLEEP! I’m blessed!
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.”
