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!

The pictures of the last two posts on this homepage say it all. In a nutshell, my back yard compares nothing to Colleen’s! Her’s is in bloom. Mine is in gloom. The ground on which our neighborhood was built contains more clay than actual soil for planting. Thus, the majority of my neighbors took to…

My six-year-old son and I were recently headed home after baseball practice. He had been pretty quiet, likely tired from being very active for the past couple hours in the hot sun. He just looked out the window as we traveled. While waiting at a stoplight, he suddenly perked up and said, blatantly, “We buy…

Our little guy has had a few difficulties moving through the first grade at school. In a nutshell, virtual learning was not the best introduction to Kindergarten, much less elementary school as a whole. He’s had his challenges with reading and spelling, but given his dedication to the subjects, he’s beginning to turn the corner.…
