My second run at V103.3 began just as Hurricane Florence hit Eastern North Carolina. The radio station was destroyed by flood waters and needed to be resurrected from scratch. It hasn’t been fun-and-games; nobody got off easy from the storm. It’s been a work in progress and a challenge for us all to rise from the ashes to rebuild our homes and our state.

Thank you for continuing to listen and support local radio. This whole experience has been the most on-edge of my radio career thus far, not only as a radio announcer but also as a citizen. Despite its challenges, it also has its rewards. In my few months back on V103.3, it’s been a pleasure to help over the airwaves as well as step out to assist into our communities. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn and to grow and to do so as a member of V103.3!

Because of the winter-like temperatures in the 30s which greeted us Saturday morning, everyone who attended my church’s annual Easter outdoor gathering that lasted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. dressed warm. I decided not to wear a…

The Final Answer To Over/Under.

Over? Under? It’s a never ending argument. Which way is the toilet paper roll supposed to go? I ask because I’ve seen yet another online study regarding this argument in which I’m sure the dinosaurs once engaged (and look where they are now). It just never seems to get old.  Boring?  Absolutely. Sure, this current…
