WKRQ • Q102 | 3pm–7pm Monday–Friday
At 9 years old, Jon realized he wanted to pursue a career as a radio personality. “I tried to talk over intros on my sister’s karaoke machine. And unfortunately, I haven’t progressed much from that moment,” Jon jokes.
After being with Q102 for 10 years, there’s one thing he always has with him when on air. It’s a dog tag necklace he received from his boss, Patti. For Jon, it’s a good luck charm, so he wears it every day.
Some of Jon’s favorite moments with Q102 are the ones where he has had an opportunity to give back to the community. “My experiences with Cystic Fibrosis Foundation have been some of my favorites. I’ve hosted a bunch of their fundraising events, and I have met some incredible little boys and girls who have the disease,” he says. “The kids I’ve met are some of the strongest most enduring individuals I’ve ever encountered. I love giving my time to that cause.”
When he isn’t on air, Jon enjoys hitting the gym. He also likes spending nights out on the town with his wife, Toria, and friends and spending nights in watching Netflix.
The Ultimate Prank
JonJon has grown up on Q102, and his laugh is infectious. He’s also the resident prankster as you will see in this video when he and a co-worker decided to one up each other.
