Michele Smith was born and raised in Hamblen County and is tickled to be working at ‘Hometown Radio WCRK’. She is an active member of First Christian Church, a community volunteer with several non-profit groups, a member of OES Chapter #31 and works for the Hamblen County Government. She is a fanatic when it comes to old movies, including silent movies and she loves reading mysteries. She and her husband, Rick, enjoy searching for waterfalls and off-the-beaten-path things to do. On occasion, she finds time to sleep.
John grew up in the small historic town of Natchez Mississippi. He caught the radio bug early in life at age 13 and got his first “real” radio job when he was 15. He won’t mention what year that was. Let’s just say it was a few years ago. He has worked at radio stations in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and here in East Tennessee.
John and his wife Ann like to hike, treasure hunt at thrift stores and just get lost in the mountains together. John is glad to be back with 105.7 WCRK FM and Ann’s happy about it too, being that it gets him out of the house!
