RYDER MICHAELS (3a-7a): Ryder says honestly, he can’t believe that he’s been in the radio business for over 20 years. It all started when he was 17 and looking for a cool job site for my Career Placement class. Once he stepped foot into the radio station, he was hooked. Ryder fell in love with two things while in high school…radio and a cute cheerleader named Amanda. Luckily neither has kicked him to the curb yet! Over the years Ryder’s had had the privilege of making days a bit better by playing music and telling stories. Also, he and Amanda have given two of the most amazing kids a forever home, and their lives are full!
ALAN CRAIG (7a-Noon): Alan was born in California, “arriving” the same year The Beatles arrived in America! When he was a kid he used to play Elvis records and pretend to be a DJ. Well, some things never change! Alan loves being a part of your day and playing your favorite songs. And when he’s not playing radio, you’ll find him playing sports. Alan’s really really good at yelling ‘Foreeeee!”
