Who is JT?
JT has been in radio for over 30 years, both as an on-air personality and Program Manager. He grew up in Pittsburgh and then attended Clarion University with the hopes of becoming a dentist. After spending time with friends at the campus radio station, he quickly changed his major to communications. Speech class was a lot easier than chemistry and physics, says JT. And as they say the rest is history.JT has lived in 10 different cities during his career including Miami, Washington D.C., Cincinnati, Nashville, Birmingham and Miami.
In addition to hosting a morning talk show, he has also worked as an announcer in Top-40, Rock, Smooth Jazz, and Country radio. You can also look for JT in the movies Hoffa and Striking Distance.
JT and his wife Judy have two children. Alexandra is married and teaches 5th grade. Michael is a graduate of the University of Alabama and a former 3 Time National Championship winning football player for the team ROLL TIDE! When not sitting in front of a microphone, JT can be found with his family most of the time. He absolutely enjoys his recreation too! Look for JT on the golf course, in the woods hunting or on the beach somewhere. No doubt, I am truly blessed with an amazing family and give all the glory to God and my relationship with Jesus Christ! I really love what I do every day.
Who is Producer Wade?
Producer Wade Smith stepped into the radio world nearly 10 years ago. He got his start as an intern at a sports production company and took the leap into radio as a play-by-play announcer for the Georgia State University women's basketball team.
Wade made his way back to the Birmingham area via a radio cluster in Northeast Georgia. He has a degree from the University of Alabama in Management Information Systems and uses it daily to contribute in as many ways as possible to the show. He was born and raised in Cullman and his family still resides in the area.
As of May 2019, Wade will be off the market and married to the wonderful Megan. They live in the Cullman area with their dog Dex. You may have already heard Wade and JT discussing her on the show.
In addition to producing Alabama's Morning News with JT, Wade is the Sports Director for News Radio 105.5 WERC and Talk Radio 105.9. He is currently the Studio Host for the Birmingham Iron Football Team and the Birmingham Bulls Hockey Team. Wade also host's our award winning Friday night "The 5th Quarter Show" providing the state of Alabama with post game scores from the High School fields and previews from the College stadiums.
Wade teams up with Dino from our sister station 103.7 the Q to host one of iHeartRadio’s most entertaining podcasts, The BingeCast, focusing on great television shows from the past and things you may not have known from them.
In his spare time, you can find Wade around town at a local restaurant, bar, or music venue. He loves to spend time with his family and friends any chance he can. "I love what I do for a living. Any job that allows me to talk for a living while attending all the events I would attend for fun anyway is the perfect job for me!"
