A radio veteran of over 20 years, Becky lives for the great outdoors. Hiking, canoeing, cycling, or even an adventure in Yellowstone with her latest hobby, photography. Becky's a big animal lover and currently has a rescued cat and would have many more pets if she had the space. She likes experimental baking and subjecting her coworkers at the station to her creations. Becky's taste in music is across the board. If you looked in her iPod you'd find everything from Eric Clapton to Kings of Leon, the Black Keys to some Motown, a little classical, lots of old school Blues, and a good amount of Frank Sinatra.
The Morning Show at V98.3 is a little bit of everything...with an emphasis on Local News every half hour complimented by National News at the top of the hour. Local and National sports, and the Twin Tiers best music mix makes the Morning get up and go a whole lot easier.

Jay has enjoyed playing the hits for 4 decades now. He is so driven by music and the history of Rock & Roll that he loves to play music trivia with anyone willing to play. (Hint: He knows his stuff!) Married for 32 years to his lovely bride Regina, their children have grown and gone on to very successful careers themselves. A volunteer with the fire dept. and rabid baseball fan, his secret goal in life is to visit every ballpark in America to rate how nice the parking lots are. He's recently been elected Mayor of Rock & Roll by his 27 fans who have never met him but like his voice. (If they only knew.)
John's 30+ radio career has taken him all across the country in some of the biggest markets. His love of music as a musician has also done the same playing guitar in his own rock band along with work as a session musician for other great artists. When John's not rockin' on the stage or entertaining us on the radio he's hitting the hills off-road on his mountain bike or motorcycle, or buried in his music room going through his huge collection of LPs. He also loves a great novel and never misses the latest blockbuster movie.
Keith Stephens grew up in New England, but escaped the cold to graduate from Arizona State where he started his radio career. When he's not on the radio, he's a true soccer dad with two daughters (one a teenager so wish him luck). He loves classic TV, especially Seinfeld and MASH! He likes to workout and read on his Kindle and watch the latest trends on social media. First album he ever bought? "Band on the Run" by Paul McCartney and Wings. He still has it and is excited because vinyl is cool again!
Timm's love of radio takes him back to when he first cracked the mic as a senior at his high school radio station. Over 35 years later he still can't get enough of it. People often ask him about the extra 'M' in his first name. That goes way back to 7th grade when his nickname was "Tim with 2 M's." It's stuck ever since. In his spare time Timm enjoys golf, doing 'dad duties' (anything that sounds fun to his 10 year old son!), golf, and watch collecting. (We mentioned golf twice because he plays a lot!) Timm LOVES music and is truly blessed to be doing what he loves for a living!
