I started out at KHAK as an intern back in 1996 and have been calling mornings home since 1999. A lot has changed since then, but I still love the job! There's always something new to talk about! And the KHAK listeners are awesome. They're loyal, and always willing to lend their opinion. My wife Holly and I make our home in Marion. We have three great kids that seem to grow every single day. Chase, Carly and Cayleigh keep us on our toes, but being a parent is the greatest adventure of all

Hello! I'm Courtlin! I am from the magical land of Detroit, Michigan. When I'm not working I enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix, eating nachos, singing karaoke, spending money I don't have, and stalking people on Facebook.

Hey ya'll! I'm Danielle. I was born and raised just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Go Cardinals! I studied broadcast journalism back home and moved to Cedar Rapids with my now fiance, Josh, and our 90 lb pup, Mira, to work in radio. When I'm not working I enjoy traveling, hiking, eating ice cream, and shopping -- I'm a sucker for a cute pair of cowboy boots. Country music is by far my favorite thing to listen to from Johnny Cash to Miranda Lambert

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my page. I'm a native Cedar Rapidian and a graduate of the University of Iowa. When I’m not at the station, I can be found hanging out with my rough collie, Velvet, and a cat named Coop. I love exploring NewBo and going to concerts and shows of all kinds. Aside from the Hawks, I love the Bulls, Bears, and White Sox. I also have a soft spot for the Los Angeles Dodgers. (I’ve even been to a game at Dodger Stadium!)

Hello, K-Hawk Country. I've been calling KHAK listeners like you, and the region, that for longer than I sometimes like to admit. Cedar Rapids and 98.1 KHAK have been my home since 1990. Very few people are lucky enough to be able to call one place home for as long as I have and I'm extremely thankful you've put up with me for all these years. My wife, Julie, and I make Cedar Rapids home and we have a couple cats named Caylie, and Charlie. We also have a dog named Casey

Time flies when you’re having fun. I’ve been in radio now for over 25 years and over 20 of those years have been here at KHAK. I grew up in a racing family and drive a dirt late model in the summertime, all around Iowa. A blue #9. I also DJ wedding dances all around Iowa and enjoy watching the Iowa Hawkeyes, racing, and the Big Bang Theory. What I love most about country music is that the artists play instruments and tell stories with their songs
