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.

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!

Had a ton of fun fishing with the kids for the first time this summer. Hit the pier at Atlantic Beach yesterday under cloudy skies (but no rain!) and extremely exceptional temperatures (mid 70s!) and three lousy fishing poles. Ended up with a couple crabs and three itty bitty fish but the highlight was our…

The other night we took advantage of a 2-for-1 pizza special from a local pizzeria, mainly because the kids were badgering us for it. Each pizza was medium sized; the kids ate most of one while my wife passed on them because she just wasn’t hungry. That left the remaining pizza for me, which I…

It’s just not summer without seeing this on the side of Interstate 95 during travels north or south of the border. Yet we have never stopped in to see what is offered! Anyone out there make it a necessity or have a habit of taking a break there while on your way to somewhere else?…
