Jake Ryan

Hey it’s Jake Ryan! I love playing you the new country music every afternoon as you wrap up your day. Then I go home, crawl on the floor, build forts, clean up crayon marks on walls, splash in the tub, kick balls around in the backyard, say “no” a lot and laugh. In case you didn’t know, I have two young boys, Caleb and Truman. That would be weird if I did all that stuff by myself. My lovely wife Kristin and I are celebrating five years together, and we love to be active with our family. Summer is fun with road trips and pools. When we get a night to ourselves with Grandma’s help, we love the movies, trying new places to eat and napping.

I’ve always wanted to be in radio for as long as I can remember. My mom always had the radio on when I was growing up. My aunt and uncle always listened to the “old country” music, so that’s how the love started. My most favorite thing about being on the radio is talking to people. I can’t tell you how much it means to us when you call and tell us home much we help to get you through the day. See you at the next concert!
