Gabrielle Madonna


I was born and raised right here in Fostoria and graduated from Fostoria High School in 2011. In 2015, I received a BA in both Communication and Black Studies from Denison University. I knew working in media was my passion as early as high school, when I fell in love with television production as one of the presenters for FETV on channel 10.

In college, I interned with 13abc in Toledo as a producer and reporter. I was also blessed to be able to study abroad in Ghana (West Africa), where I traveled the country, danced with a high priestess, stood 10 feet away from an elephant and learned about the amazing art and culture. I worked with various film producers and directors of Kumawood, the “Hollywood of Ghana”, known for their movies featuring local languages. I starred in “Apostle Amanehunu” and was featured in a few other films.

I have a strong love for a wide variety of music ranging anywhere from Sia to Tupac to Joan Jett… Documentary films, vintage fashion, yoga and traveling are a few of my many random interests.

Although I’ve been part of the Tri-County Broadcasting Team since last summer, I’m now making my debut as an on-air personality for MIX 96.7 WBVI. I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with such talented people at a fabulous station!

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!

Lance Morris

Well for starters I come from a family where I am the only child.

I graduated from Northwood High School in Northwood, Ohio in 2012. I graduated from THE Bowling Green State University in May of 2016 with a degree in Telecommunications with a focus on radio. While in school I was got to be a part of the Bowling Green Radio Sports Organization and do play-by-play for multiple BGSU Teams. I was lucky enough to broadcast from Quicken Loans Arena for the Semi-Finals of the MAC Men's Basketball Tournament, and I got to be a sideline reporter for the MAC Title game in Football at Ford Field in 2015.

As amazing as those experiences has been I've been fortunate to have two summers broadcasting baseball. Two summers ago I was in Xenia, Ohio, and this past summer I was in Chugiak, Alaska! Spending two months in Alaska was some of the best days I've ever had in my life.

Sports and Pop Culture are where I get my main thrills on a day-to-day basis. My teams are the Tigers, Magic, Browns, BGSU Falcons, and Buckeyes.

My music fix is mostly rap with rock every now and then. Anyone who talks to me for longer than five minutes knows that I am about as big a fan of Kanye West as you'll meet.

I'm so grateful to have this opportunity to be here!

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.
