Michelle Mitchell was born and raised in Beech Island, SC where there is no beach and there is no island.
She started her radio career at the ripe old age of 22 in Charleston, SC before moving on to Augusta, Ga and Savannah, Ga and then back to Augusta for a 16 year span of every format from classic rock, modern rock, CHR and adult contemporary before starting her own business doing commercial voice over for radio and tv as well as narration for audio books and short films.
TJ Hart has been behind a radio or TV microphone since he was a sophomore in high school in 1975.
He began his career at WJCK-FM in Rensselaer, IN playing music on the weekends, doing a little news and broadcasting local high school sports—when he wasn’t playing on the court or on the field.
While attending Indiana State University at Terre Haute, TJ began learning the finer points of broadcasting at WTHI AM/FM and TV.
After spending a brief time in radio in Texas, he returned to the Midwest and spent 22 years in radio and television in Springfield, Illinois at WFMB-FM, WMAY-AM, WSEC-TV, WRSP-TV and WICS-TV.
TJ came to 98.3 WOW-FM after 7 years at News/Talk WSKY-FM in Gainesville, FL where he also did some national television work on FOX, CNN and HLN covering the Wesley Snipes tax fraud trial, the rash of Florida child abduction cases in addition to all the other stories making national news in the Sunshine State.
