"97 GOLD" Personalities

Mike Shaw (5 AM-9 AM)

Mike's been working in radio and television for nearly 40 years. Full-time in TV as a cameraman, producer/director of local newscasts, and management. Through it all he's worked part-time & full-time in radio, later leaving TV to make radio his official career working in markets all across the country. Mike not only loves radio & TV he’s also a huge music fan! He has a huge record and CD collection (much to his wife's dismay) along with the best sounding state-of the-art audio equipment. Mike’s also an active runner and a biker.

JJ McKay (9 AM-2 PM)

JJ has been working in radio and television in a full or part-time capacity since 1977 when she graduated from Ohio University with a BSC in Radio/TV/Journalism. JJ enjoys doing mobile DJ gigs since she can engage the crowd in a live atmosphere & see everyone smiling while having so much fun!  She also loves spending time hanging out with her pets as well as hiking, alone or with her significant other.  

Jay Fox (2 PM - 7PM)

Jay Fox has enjoyed playing the hits for 4 decades now. He is so driven by music and the history of Rock & Roll, he loves to play music trivia with anyone willing to play. (Hint: He knows his stuff!)  Married for 31 years to his lovely bride Regina, their children have grown and gone on to very successful careers themselves.  A volunteer with the fire dept. and rabid baseball fan, his secret goal in life is to visit every ballpark in America to rate how nice the parking lots are. He’s recently been elected Mayor of Rock & Roll Radio by his 27 fans who have never met him but like his voice.  (If they only knew)

Scott O'Brian (7PM - 12AM)

Scott literally grew two inches in one day at age 15, when doctors straightened a curve in his spine and took him from 5’11’ to 6’1’.  The extra height and his deep voice helped him land a radio job while only a high school junior.  By 20 he was on the air in Chicago.  Scott is into history and golf, books and movies, and music ranging from Steely Dan to Maroon 5 and Sinatra.  He’d like to see the Broncos in the Super Bowl again and the Cubs win the World Series.  (It’s good to dream big!)

Kent Richards (12 AM - 5 AM)

Kent’s love of music, the entertainment industry, and electronics has made his 30+ years in radio less of a job and more of a fun hobby.  He’s also a big fan of most sports as a spectator & a player, keeps up on the latest in cars & planes, can’t get enough of any cool new technology or gadget, and loves to relax with a good book.   Kent’s especially proud of his four beautiful children and the exciting paths they’ve taken with their lives.   

Dave Sanders (5 AM - 9 AM Saturday Mornings)

Hi, I’m Dave, my wife Debby and I have been married for over 37 years. We love listening to music live or recorded. We’re very proud of all our children, especially our son Jacob, an accomplished jazz musician (Baritone Sax) in New York City. We also like to travel, bike, hike, and spend time with our grandchildren, five of `em! I am on Facebook and love hearing from listeners.
