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!

Say hello to Chief, and thanks to the wonderful family who made him available to us, especially our kids (they’ve been inquiring about…

Finally took the kids to a Down East Wood Ducks baseball game in Kinston this past weekend! Although the home team didn’t do so well, it was still a whole lot of fun! Thanks to our friends we met at the game, each child received a rather cool sponsor jersey and also snagged foul balls…

Another First Time For Everything

My daughter made me proud – she got her first rock t-shirt during a recent trip to get school supplies! She doesn’t know what “an AC/DC” is nor any song the group sings. “I like it because of all the designs and it’s just feels cool to wear!”, she said. Still, a rock t-shirt is…
