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 X-Trees – To Be Continued…

You heard me say on the radio that our six-year-old had named our Christmas tree Larry. I also mentioned my wife had yet to put up another, a tree she had gotten from her mother. My son stated it be called Bob. In order to make our son ponder, I asked if he knew for…

You Know It’s Sad But True

Pulled up to the pump recently to see the previous user paid a small fortune to fill his or her tank. I did not see the vehicle but I’m guessing it was much larger than my wife’s Honda Civic, which I was driving at the time. Regardless, I hope this was a fill the driver’s…
