WKRQ • Q102 | 11am–3pm Monday–Friday
Mollie Watson’s mom always knew her little girl would follow in her footsteps and become a radio personality. As a child, Mollie would play pretend radio, which included walking around with a notebook, pen, cassette recorder, and microphone, as she interviewed her guests. “I was a yappy kid—always loved to talk,” Mollie laughs.
During her four years with Q102, she’s had a number of unforgettable experiences, including skydiving for the Aubrey Rose Foundation (talk about a rush!). One moment that sticks out in her mind is the time she was interviewing DNCE’s lead bassist Cole Whittle. Cole was wearing white denim overalls with hundreds of signatures. So, Mollie asked if she could sign his overalls. He responded by saying, “Oh, these aren’t just signatures! They are phone numbers.” So naturally, she signed his pants and gave him her number. Mollie is the host of a special feature called Give Back Tuesday, which features a different charity on the Pick 6 every Tuesday. And FC Fridays are always fun when the Cincinnati FC stop by.
Mollie stays busy when she isn’t on air. She loves watching murder mystery shows, like 20/20 and Dateline. She also recently started refurbishing furniture and shopping at antique malls. “There is something about owning something that no one else owns that makes it so special,” she says.
