Jennifer Wilde is an award-winning radio personality whose 25+ year career behind the microphone has spanned the United States (most notably in Monterey, California and Denver, Colorado.) Jennifer is also an actor, voice actor and occasional professional singer. She’s a hard core fan of chocolate and an animal lover and a huge chunk of her heart belongs to her grand-puppy, Lucky. In her down time, you’ll most likely find her chatting with one of her two grown sons, hiking through the woods, or rocking the mic at karaoke.
Buddy’s mom was a big Buddy Holly fan and the rest is history. Buddy grew up in an All-American family in a small town in Ohio where he would listen to faraway radio stations in Chicago, New York, Detroit, and Cleveland and he got the radio bug. He also figured his new found celebrity status would attract the girls’ attention. It doesn’t always work that way!
Buddy’s first big radio job was at America’s first major market oldies station, the legendary 1220 WGAR in Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that he honed his craft, met and interviewed hundreds of rock ‘n roll artists and generally just had a ton of fun.
After working at a variety of Cleveland radio stations, Buddy moved to the desert near Phoenix, Arizona.
But after a while the desert heat made it hard for Buddy to remember his name so he and his wife, a Spokane native and North Central grad, decided to regain their sanity and move to Spokane where he heard KOOL Oldies and just couldn’t pass on the chance to play them on KOOL 107.1
