WUBE • B-105 | Amanda & Jesse Show | 3pm–7pm Monday–Friday
A self-proclaimed radio nerd, Amanda Valentine always knew radio was the career for her. In fact, she used to tape her favorite morning show on cassette tapes when she left for school, then listen to them when she got home.
As a Millstadt, IL, native, Amanda returned to her Midwest roots in January of 2015 as the other half of B-105’s Afternoon Show with Jesse Tack. Prior to joining the B-105 family, she worked for country stations all over the country, including Oregon and New York.
Throughout her career, Amanda has had the opportunity to see communities rally together to benefit those in need. One of her favorite moments took place while living in Oregon when a nearby town was destroyed by a wildfire. With the help of her co-workers, Amanda organized an event the next day where she broadcasted live at a grocery store collecting supplies for those in need. “It was great seeing everyone come together to help out, we filled two semi-trucks,” she recalls.
When Amanda isn’t at the station she loves to hike, travel, camp, work out, cook and try new things. You may even spot her hanging out at a local coffee shop drinking copious amounts of coffee!
