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!

Ode To Popcorn

Ode To Popcorn

I have two favorite snacks. One is popcorn. I love popcorn of all flavors, colors, and varieties. There’s a popcorn popper at home as well as microwave popcorn. The only thing about popcorn that disappoints me is there’s less in a microwave bag of popcorn than there used to be. And it costs more. Sure,…
