102.7 WICY DJ’s
I was born in the northwest corner of Connecticut where I grew up and fell in love with classic rock/hits music. I’m a graduate of Northern Vermont University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. I followed my fondness for radio post-college at an Adult CHR station known as Magic 97.7 and eventually found my way to the North Country after three years. When not playing music or connecting with all of you on air or via social media, I’m listening to or watching sports… especially football.
My commercial radio journey started in the Hudson Valley in 2008. I was there for six years doing promotional and on air work. I then moved to Connecticut and worked for a local heritage group of stations for the next 4 years. When I saw the opportunity to come up to the North Country I JUMPED at the chance! Not only is it gorgeous up here, but my sister lives in Plattsburgh and the more chances I have to bother her in person the better!
I’m into history, all kinds of pop culture, and FOOD… food is very important to me. I’m also a croquet player. Tough to explain, but you’re more than welcome to ask! If its baseball season I’m watching the Yankees and football season I’m usually cringing at the Jets.
I’m very excited to join the 102.7/ 103.5 team and look forward to being a part of this great community!
“I was born and raised in Central IL, worked for various stations all over the Midwest, but now proudly call upstate NY home! I am the proud parent of 3 kids, twin boys, and a little girl who keeps the twins in line! I have two rescue boxer-mix dogs, who much like my children, are wild and crazy, but also very sweet and adorable. When I’m not playing music on the radio, or busy with my kids’ activities, I can usually be found playing music weddings, dining out, hiking trails, or traveling.”
I was born and raised in the Buckeye state, in a little town called Greenville, Ohio. I’ve been playing radio since I was 17. Before coming up to New York I spent 5 years in Dayton, OH. From the Miami Valley to the North Country! Let’s have some nightly fun!
I guess you could say that “Radio”is my families business, my grandfather Don Paye graced the airwaves of WICY for over 30 years, as well as my mom, aunt and my brother!! I love being on WICY entertaining all the people of the North Country!! i myself have been in radio for over 20 years!! When im not behind a microphone i love spending time with wife, my daughter, 2 sons & 3 cats. I am a HUGE Star wars geek and movie buff!
