STEVE HARMON, Mornings
After years of college classes at SUNY-Adirondack to lose a "NY accent," Harmon found himself on stage with “Reba” winning a CMA Award for Air Personality of the Year. He is one of the very few to become a member of the Country Radio Hall of Fame-Nashville. He did ask the CMA board members if they had the right Steve Harmon?!  Harmon is an avid cyclist and horrible guitar player. When not working, you can find Harmon at animal shelters helping find pets their "forever homes."

PENNY MITCHELL, Middays
I have always been absolutely enamored of radio.  After I figured out that the music coming from the radio of our family car wasn't being produced by teeny tiny little people who lived in the dashboard (for real...I did think that) I was always really interested in the nuts and bolts of how radio works.  However, I fell completely slam-bam in love with radio when I was about 13.  I was always a huge music buff and would spend hours pouring over liner notes while listening to albums through headphones.  However, this was definitely pre-internet, and I wasn't allowed to have a phone (or even TV) in my room.  When I was in there by myself, I was totally and completely by myself.  As much as I loved my albums, I would invariably get to feeling a little lonely, and I discovered THE COOLEST THING I HAD EVER ENCOUNTERED:  all I had to do was turn the turntable off and flip the radio on.  And just like that, with the flip of just one switch, I was no longer all alone in my room.  With the flip of a switch, I was hanging out with a friend, listening to music.  It was, and remains, the coolest magic trick I've ever seen.  I am so honored to get to do this for a living.

RYAN FOX, Afternoon & Evenings
Ryan never truly remembers a time he was not around a radio station. His earliest memories are of walking the halls and helping out any way he could at his family's radio stations in western Oklahoma. Eventually, they let him run the board and after that, the rest was history.  It didn't take long for him to realize this is what he wanted to do. After graduating from Hobart High School in Hobart, Oklahoma, Ryan was accepted, and graduated from, one of the world's top film schools at the University of Southern California, home to such prestigious alumni as George Lucas, Ron Howard, and Steven Spielberg, to name a few, but he always new radio was his true passion. Ryan has been heard on the air at legendary radio stations like 99-5 The Wolf in Dallas, Go Country 105 in Los Angeles, and his show, which features celebrity guests and lots of fun 6 days a week. Has also been beamed coast to coast to over 200 stations on the Westwood One Radio Networks and around the world for our troops on the American Forces Network.

DYLAN SALISBURY, Nights
Hey, I’m Dylan! I was raised on country music legends like George Strait, Conway Twitty, Garth Brooks, Patsy Cline & George Jones. Some of my modern-day favorites are Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, & Thomas Rhett. My radio adventure of moving town-to-town up and down the dial includes stops in Minneapolis, Lincoln, Des Moines, Indianapolis and Colorado Springs. When I’m not talking into a microphone, I’m either traveling, playing hockey or cheering on my favorite sports teams.

RICH CREEGER, Overnights
I’ve been involved in Country music since I was hired back in the early 80’s at the World Famous Gilley’s nightclub in Pasadena, Texas during the height of the Urban Cowboy craze. Although Country music has gone through many variations since then it has always been the first preset on my radio because it still has the foundation of real stories told by real people about real life. Some of my favorite current artists are Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer. Some of my all-time favorites are Willie Nelson, George Jones and Reba. My wife Fran and I are a blended family of 5 kids, 2 dogs and a cat and when her and I get some free time (ha ha what’s that?) we usually point the car toward the beach, set up camp and just stare at it.
