WREW • Mix 94.9 | 10:30am–3pm Monday–Friday
For Ray, “playing radio” and recording himself were his favorite pastimes as a kid. But, it wasn’t until he was in school pursuing a career in television that he realized radio was his true calling. Once he had his first experience with a microphone in front of him, he was hooked.
Throughout his career, Ray has met a number of celebrities, including Marilyn Manson. “We were in the basement of the Taft Theater, which is creepy enough as it is. Then his security team started explaining the “protocol” for meeting Marilyn and made us aware the room would be very dark and not to speak too loudly,” Ray recalls. “I was half expecting to walk into a dungeon, but it was just a candle lit room with LaRosa’s and Skyline everywhere (he is from Ohio!). And he was dressed like Cap’n Crunch. He wound up being a really nice guy!”
As an animal lover (Ray owns two dogs and three cats), one of his favorite giving back moments on Mix 94.9 was loading a van with 700 pounds of pet food for the Thanksgiving Pet Project. Ray’s love of pets is also reflected on The Mix website with the Pet of the Day program. 150 pets and counting have found their forever home!
When he’s not at the station, find Ray running around town training for his next marathon.
Pet Lovers Unite
With cats and dogs at home, Ray has a soft spot for 4-legged friends. He’s in charge of the Mix 94.9 Pet of the Day, which has helped find forever homes for 75 pets so far! Here’s Ray introducing us to a new hangout for cat lovers, The Kitty Brew Cat Café.
