Well let's see... I'm from a big family. I'm the second oldest of 6 kids and I have 11 aunts/uncles and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

I graduated in 2006 from Upper Arlington High School in Columbus and graduated in 2011 from THE Ohio State University. If you're wondering why I spent 5 years in college, it's because for some reason I thought it was a good idea to get two degrees, one in mathematics and one in journalism (no, I don't want to write articles on math lol).

I started off in media writing for Ohio State's student paper and calling basketball games for the student radio group. My first internship was through OSU's Athletic Dept. where I was the voice of the OSU Women's basketball team for the 2010-2011 season, then I got to intern at WBNS-FM 97.1 The Fan in Columbus where I gained some invaluable experience and realized that radio was what I wanted to do for a career.

I'm a HUGE sports fan/nerd (Buckeyes, Bengals, Reds and Blue Jackets), movie buff (if you didn't already guess from my daily movie quote game) and music fan (AC/DC, Fall Out Boy and Goo Goo Dolls to name a few).

Moved up to Findlay from Columbus to start working at WBVI/WFOB in August and still getting used to things, but I love it here and I thank my lucky stars for the opportunity to do what I love with such a great company in such an awesome city!

Dan Kotnik

Originally from the Dayton area, I grew up with a huge family (the oldest of six). Parents and all my aunts and uncles grew up in either Tiffin or Bascom, so I was very familiar with the area before moving up here.

I'm a proud graduate of THE Bowling Green State University where I got my degree in Sport Management and minor in journalism. I developed my love for radio, particularly sports radio, while I was there. I got to do play-by-play for a wide variety of BGSU sports: football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball; even got to call a bowl game at Ford Field! I'll always be forever grateful for the experience and relationships I got while I was there.

As you can guess, I'm a sports junkie with my biggest fix coming from the 13-time world champion Green Bay Packers, of whom I'm a partial owner. My fandom also spreads to the Tigers, Celtics, Bruins and Buckeyes.

I'm excited to be here with an awesome company and ready to do big things here!

Leeroy

Real name Lee Kelbley, Leeroy likes to hang around sporting events and attend live music events. He can usually be spotted at any Browns or Indians game (as long as he has time and the money) and also loves his Bowling Green Falcons and Ohio State Buckeyes. He is a proud graduate of Bowling Green State University and earned a degree in radio and a minor in personal communication. While at BGSU, he ran his own show, "Take It All In" on the airwaves of 88.1 WBGU.

Leeroy got his radio nickname from his high school friends and classmates, who originally referred to him as the YouTube sensation Leeroy Jenkins (because of his ways of approaching difficult situations), but then it eventually was shortened down to just Leeroy. He grew up in the local cornfield of New Riegel, Ohio and graduated in 2009 with 31 other classmates. He's a lean 6'5" and was a multi-sport athlete who played varsity basketball, baseball, golf and holds New Riegel's all time scoring record in football. Our records show that he was taken under the wing of the legendary Josh Hohman, who brought him into the Mix 96.7 family back in 2010. Since then, Josh has moved on and he has stuck around.

For the station, well, he helps us do a little bit of everything. He fills in on-air for Nick and Miranda sometimes and likes to spice up the shows by playing more 80's and 90's songs than today's hits. He is not afraid to admit that he is a Taylor Swift fan and loves the sounds of The Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars and Aerosmith. We tend to believe that he suffers from some sort of musical A.D.D. because he knows artists and song names from too many different genres. Trust us, you want him on your "Name that Tune" team.



Bernie Mack

Bernie is a bit of a mystery. We don't know where he was born... or if he has brothers or sisters. We know he has a wife, Emilie, and two dogs, Howard and Kiwi. The wife proves that girls will talk to him, well, at least one girl. She's the only one on record. His favorite food is sandwiches and his favorite member of the Spice Girls is Sporty. And he watches a lot of TV. An alarming amount, really.

Chris Hatton

When I’m not on the late night shift, you might find me on the ice (lying down), in the fairway (hopefully) or in the gym (really?).

I also do my fair share of hiking and biking, weather permitting of course.

After 10 plus years, I still love entertaining people and I’m thankful every day that you give me that opportunity.
