Middays 10am-2pm

Judith Gross

My first love is radio. I'm an award-winning audio producer and I've spent most of my professional life  in front of a microphone. Radio and the music of my generation got me through my childhood and adolescence. This is my calling, so I wouldn't even try to imagine doing anything else. I love connecting with Cool 96's listeners over the airwaves middays Monday through Friday 10-2 and telling the world what I'm having for lunch. It also makes me proud to be working for a locally-owned radio group that does so much for our community. I connect with the music we play because it's my music, too. What I especially like about being in radio is the occasional opportunity to meet listeners in person. Then I can picture them listening as I talk into the mic so I never feel like I'm alone. Work never gets tedious when you're living your passion, and I feel lucky to be able to have so much fun doing my job.

Afternoons 2pm - 5pm

Josh Evans

As a youngest staffer, what do you like best about our area?
All the seasons to enjoy, it's close to home and we have pro hockey!
What is your favorite food?
I'm a sucker for a good Penne ala Vodka... know any good places that have it on the menu?
So food aside, what is your favorite song?
"Bad Bad Leroy Brown" - Jim Croce
Is he also your favorite artist?
No, that honor falls on Fleetwood Mac
How about best concert moment or favorite concert?
I've seen so many; but Peter Noone is excellent showman!
How about on-air, do you have a best radio moment?
Letting listeners bleach and cut my hair to raise money for a cancer charity (I wore a hat a lot after that day).
Before Cool 96, what were you?
I'm the youngest on staff remember?  I was in diapers!
If not in radio, what would you be doing?
I'd probably be a lawyer or fiscal advisor.
