“Nearly 8 years ago, I walked into KBNJ 91.7 FM, just seeking a shot to be on radio. Joe Fahl gave me that chance. I started as a volunteer DJ, just thrilled and humbled for the opportunity to be a part of a radio station. Not even a year later, I got a part-time position as the new host of the Drive Home Show. A year later, I got promoted to full-time, helping out with community promotions, concerts, and calls from record label reps and independent promoters. This job has taken me to levels I’ve never expected, and today, we announced that I’m heading to the next level.
After 26 years, Joe stepped down, and passed the torch to me…I mean, what in the world, right? Thursday April 14 was his last, and the following Monday was my first day as the host of the Morning Show, and as Station Manager. God continues to blow me away y’all! I know I make it a daily plan to encourage you, but I want to thank you for encouraging me to stay humble, be grateful and maintain my focus on God. I’m so excited, and I pray I do half as good of a job as Joe has.”
