Waking Up With Brooks

Waking Up With Brooks

Get to know Brooks:

Good Morning, my name is Chris Brooks, the new morning guy on V103.3. I have been in radio for almost 7 years entertaining people all over the country. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Oh, so yes that means I am a huge Browns fan but please don’t hold that against me. I started radio in Cleveland but shortly there after I made my way to ENC to play radio. I was here the first time for a year and a half. While my time I was here I also became a professional wrestling ring announcer, I am huge fan of professional wrestling, again please don’t hold that against me. After my time was up in Greenville I made my way to Roswell, NM with all the martians for 2 two years where I had my own morning show. Unfortunately, I didn’t see any aliens but there was that week I don’t remember while living there. I left there and made my way to the Cowboys in Cheyenne, Wyo. Now I am back to ENC and ready to take over. Hold on everyone, you’re in for a ride.
