John Roberts

John has been in broadcasting for over 25 years. He got his start in Grand Rapids radio, however his love for the airwaves began as a junior in high school back when East Kentwood had it's own radio station. John even tried his hand at stand-up comedy, but admits it was harder than he ever thought. These days you can find John on a local bike path, fishing for bluegill, or watching The Walking Dead. John is a self-proclaimed Christmas nerd and can quote every line in It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story. Yes, he is apparently proud of that. Catch John having fun every weekday morning on 92.1 WGHN-FM from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM.

JD & Bridget

JD & Bridget

6:00 AM - 10:00 AM

It's been pretty much rock and more rock since JD got into radio. From his air work to programming radio stations he's kept busy. Co-hosting with Bridget now is one of his greatest thrills since they have so much fun working together. When not rocking the listeners JD is an avid sports fan. Football, hockey, basketball, and especially baseball since he played it through college. Movies are his other love getting swept away with the latest action adventure blockbuster and a big bucket of popcorn.

Bridget took the college route to get in radio, graduating with a degree in Radio & Television. Ever since she's produced and hosted many air shifts playing classic rock to oldies. Bridget loves to be out-and-about, whether it's rooting for the home team, checking out the latest watering hole, or eating at the newest restaurant in town. It's always good beer drinking weather by the way. When it comes to Bridget's taste in music, she's an unapologetic Rockhead. Old rock, new rock, she loves it all.

Bruce Palmer

Bruce Palmer

Weekdays: 6:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Bruce's 30+ year radio career started in suburban Philadelphia on dual passions...good time rock & roll and old cars. Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he's living the dream. When Bruce's not on the air, he's probably playing with his dogs and cats, watching a baseball game, spending time with his wife and two daughters, or most likely, out in the garage under a hood. You see, he really is radio's original "car guy."

Joe Jacobs

Joe Jacobs

Weekdays: 10:00 PM - 6:00 AM

Since Joe was a kid, he's been in love with radio. He'd slowly scan the dial at night trying to find a signal from some far off place, and then anxiously try to figure out the city it came from before the static took over. For twenty years Joe's felt blessed to be on this side of the mic. When he's not working, he's working....as an announcer for minor league baseball. He loves spending with his wife and daughters, and his rescue dogs.
