McKenzie Rae hit the ground running in a major market with her very first job over thirty years ago. Writing, producing, programming and being a top-rated personality...she's done it all! McKenzie's a big fan of the outdoors, exercising, walking her dogs, playing softball and spending time with her daughter. She likes all kinds of music but has a passion mostly for classic rock! Led Zeppelin, Rush, Eric Clapton and Van Halen are what she grew up with, so they bring back fond memories. Listen to McKenzie, middays on 97.9 The Planet!


Dan Dimaria was born into a large family from New York, so he learned early to either talk louder or get a microphone. He chose the latter and got his first job in radio when he was 14. Sports has always been a love of Dan's whether he's actively playing or watching from the sidelines. He's big on family and friends too and always enjoys nature with his hiking trips and his new hobby...firing up the BBQ smoker! Dan's mostly casual all the way with 50% of his wardrobe being rock T'shirts. Spend your nights with Dan on 97.9 The Planet!


Carl Russo grew up with plenty of street & strip drag racing, stock car racing and playing musical instruments and having a good time. He would then apply that energy into rock & roll and a career in radio. A major-market radio personality, TV personality and radio station owner, he's done it all. His sense of civic duty was also a priority for Carl wherever he went. He served as a fireman in many cities where he's work. Catch Carl overnights on 97.9 The Planet!


Hi, I'm Venetia! My fiancé is a police officer, so that can be a little nerve-wracking sometimes, but I wouldn't change a thing. Together, we have two furry "children" which we've rescued. Riggins is a black lab/beagle mix and he's our oldest. Zora is a putbull mix (although she doesn't really know how to be scary but it's funny to watch her try.) Food Network is my go-to. I'm a total foodie that loves to cook and eat! Thanks for letting me into your day. Together, we'll make your day just a little more enjoyable. Check me out middays on 93.7 KHF!


Hey, I'm Hayden! I was born to play golf and scuba dive...but that doesn't pay the bills. So, after spending the better part of a decade in college, I began my illustrious  career in radio - and shaved my head. I basically looked at my hair in the mirror one day and said, "You can't're fired!" I'm married with two kids and a minivan, living happily ever after. That's the story. Be sure to tune in to my show afternoons on 93.7 KHF!


What's up?! I'm Zann! I'm pretty cool, just ask my cat. Then again, I feel like sometimes he's a prisoner caught in my home just playing it cool until he can finally escape. We spend most of our time Netflixin' when I'm not out getting some "good clean fun." I'm a lover of naps, probably because I never get them. I appreciate you letting me make you laugh each night! After all, if we can't laugh, then what's the point of it all? I'll wind down your evenings on 93.7 KHF!


Hello, I'm Beau Derek and I am a self-professed beer snob! I love visiting local breweries in different cities all over the country. I use my smartphone for everything including watching TV. I enjoy going to concerts and getting to hang with the musicians. Sheppard, Justin Timberlake, Counting Crows, Katy Perry and One Republic are some of my favorite artists. I'll play the best music on Lynchburg's New Music station, overnights on 93.7 KHF!
