KMFY Air Staff
Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic films to all the new exciting flicks. When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish. I have two small boys that keep me busy, let me tell you! One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radio with our listeners. I love everything from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars. It’s such a kick!
Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as ‘Pinterest addict.’ I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler. ***
Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool. And I’m a huge sports fan.
