I'm really excited to bring my 19-plus years of experience back to WABD in Mobile. My established relationships in the market will allow me to hit the ground running. I look forward to working alongside our morning show, "John and Johnna" to help them grow their brand and continue their success, and I am thrilled to work alongside Jan Jeffries and Mike McVay. When you add that, the weather, the seafood and the unbelievably amazing people in the Gulf Coast...this is my dream job. I can’t wait to get started!”
