Chris & Deb In The Morning
He’s a parent who’s brain isn’t always quite as big as his heart. She’s a smart, caring parent who is called upon at times to save the day!
Together they make for great fun in the morning. Deb has ‘5 Things You Need To Know Before You Go‘ all morning, plus fun games with great prizes, and of course Springfield’s Fresh Variety from the 80’s to Now. Start your day with Chris & Deb on 98.7 WNNS.
I’ve been with the station since 1995, but left for four years to fulfill my life long dream of learning every hot dish recipe in Madison to Minneapolis. I’ve gone from weekend host and Gold Card Prize Guy (hey, who all remembers the Gold Card?) to midday host, night host, and finally mornings in 2010. I live in Chatham with my wife Jeannine and my youngest daughter Hannah. My oldest Meagan is a Freshman at the University of Minnesota.
I have been in Springfield since 2010 and have been having a blast. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and am a Buckeye through and through. I am married and have the world’s most amazing daughter, 6 cats, 3 dogs and one horse (plus my daughter’s snake, Fluffy.)
After stops in Chicago, IL and, most recently, Florence, Italy, Kyle Kimball is proud to be back at 98.7 WNNS, hosting afternoons from 2:00 – 7:00 p.m.
A fan of 80’s music, fast cars, and his toy poodle Charles, Kyle has kept a home in Springfield’s Washington Park neighborhood ever since moving here from Champaign/Urbana in 1993.
Originally from St. Simons Island, GA, Kyle has worked in radio since 1985. In his spare time, he enjoys playing tennis, shopping, writing, eating at new restaurants, traveling, and taking long, luxurious naps. His guilty pleasure is getting “Rick Rolled” and his pet peeve is people who don’t take their dogs for walks.
Delilah’s distinctive blend of story-telling, sympathetic listening and encouragement has made her known as the ‘Oprah of Radio’. Delilah calls her show a “safety zone where listeners take off their armor, slip into a ‘Mr. Rogers’ cardigan, sit around the electronic hearth and share their secrets.” She adds that her audience is “just like me and the two women working on the show, who were once listeners. We are single parents who work hard to strike a balance between family and work life. We also enjoy our friendships and remember to laugh as much as possible.”
Hello, my name is Troy Armstrong. I’m a professional DJ living in Springfield, Illinois. I’ve been a radio DJ since 1987 and I’ve been with Mid-West Family Broadcasting since 2014. I love being a radio DJ and I love being on 98.7 WNNS.
I’m also proud to have been voted “Best DJ” for 2016 by the State Journal-Register. Thanks for listening!
Jim Leach handles weekend news duties on 98.7 WNNS, and if he’s really well-behaved, he is sometimes allowed to fulfill his lifelong dream of being an honest-to-goodness DJ. Jim spends his spare time appearing in local theater productions and being a proud grandpa.
When you think “radio legend,” you think of National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame inductee Casey Kasem. On the air for over 50 years, Casey founded the radio staple American Top 40, which continues to be the most relevant source for pop music hits. To this day, there is no better way to experience classic hits than with Casey and the Classic American Top 40 Countdown. Music fans relive their pasts and enjoy the songs that never get old, spun with style by the most iconic voice in radio history.
