J.J. Johnston

JJ Johnston is an international man of mystery! He has graced the airwaves for many years entertaining audiences in the U.S. and Canada. He is also a media talent coach working with legendary morning teams in Canada, the U.S. and Australia. He even speaks all three languages-????. He and his stations have won many regional, domestic and international awards. He was also a supporting cast member on ‘You Can’t Do That on Television’ which was number one on Nickelodeon during its run. He fancies himself as a possessor of a great (twisted maybe?) sense of humour, a fun guy who is a news junkie/pop culture freak and brings all that to the radio. He has always been a baseball, hockey and golf fan and tees it up any time he can, wherever he travels. He even bagged his first condo last year with a brand-new Pro V! JJ is a member of the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs and has always been involved and given back to the communities he has served. He is looking forward to keeping your day going from 2p - 7p Monday through Thursdays and 2p - 6p Fridays.

Dr. Denny Woytek

Born in Erie, Pennsylvania on May 24, 1949. Lived most of my childhood on the beaches of Presque Isle and ‘spinning the hits’ at radio stations including the one I built in my basement. The broadcast range was only a few blocks but I kept the neighbors entertained. I had my first paying radio job at WJET.

In 1967 I joined the Navy to be a photographer in 1967 only to find myself as a Seabee going to Vietnam. After serving in Quang Tri and Dong Ha with CBMU 301 and building an Armed Forces Radio station in Quang Tri, I was transferred to Alaska. I spent three years in the frozen tundra of Adak Island at AFRTS as a disc jockey, program director, TV newscaster and movie host.

After discharge from the Navy I returned to Erie to work on radio and attended Mercyhurst College. I left college to take a full-time position at a 5,000-watt radio station as the wild-and-wacky morning announcer. I lived three years in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan near Mackinac Island. Moved back to Pennsylvania and spent 13 years as a morning man in Franklin, PA.

Moved to Pittsburgh in 1989 and I was a freelance Videographer, TV producer. I returned to finish my Bachelors degree in Communications at Duquesne in 1995. I worked at WDUQ as a part-time host for jazz, I completed my MS in Multimedia Technology at Duquesne. In February 2009 I completed my Ph.D. in Rhetoric with a dissertation on how Vietnam veterans are using technology to take private memory and make it public.

I was an Assistant Professor for the Journalism Multimedia Technology Department at Duquesne University and taught courses including Introduction to Multimedia Technology, Cross-Platform Authoring, Digital Imaging, Multimedia Production, Digital Videography, Photojournalism, Visual Communications, Digital Cinematography, Photojournalism, 3-D Modeling and Animation and Computer Graphic Design. I retired from Duquesne in 2016.

I have won 12 Telly Awards, one for a program called “Pennsylvania Adventures”, “A Journey of Faith” a documentary on the town and people of Medjugorje, a documentary on the visit of the Pope John Paul to the United States. I also was awarded Tellys for documentaries on John Gibson of the Negro baseball league, “We are All Immigrants”, “The Seabees Return to Vietnam”, also awarded a Pixie Award for animation.

I continue enjoying photography and my radio roots playing the music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s

Terri Bohen

Terri was born and raised on the shores of Lake Erie in Erie, PA. She spent many of her formative years babysitting for the venerable Captain Dan’s family. It was while doing the morning announcements over the loud speaker in high school that Terri first got hooked on broadcasting. After college, Terri was reunited with Captain Dan as they woke up listeners on The Breakfast Club for 13 years.

A career change was in store as Terri went into the classroom, teaching elementary English Language Learners whose families relocated to Erie from all over the globe. Terri and her husband Joe relocated themselves five years ago, giving up the shoveling for the sun and sand of Florida. She is now LOVING teaching 3rd graders, kayaking, watching for her favorite manatees, and spending weekends with listeners.

Now part of the dynamic duo of The Ladies of LECOM.

Commander Bill

I’m “Commander” Bill Hale, the purveyor to some great music on Suncoast Saturday Night, 8-Midnight on (obviously) Saturday night. As a retired law enforcement professional, I spent many years on a radio…but of a different type! But all of those midnight shifts in the police car gave me a deep appreciation for all of this great music. After retiring I wanted to become a handsome billionaire but obviously that just didn’t work out. So here I am…and very grateful to be playing some of the best music on the planet for a great audience on Florida’s Suncoast. The number to c all with your requests is 941-479-0359

Ron Arlen

Back in the 50’s, when I was a kid, my dad won’t allow rock and roll to be played in the house. My older brother
had a radio hidden in his room and once in a while I was able to listen in. That’s how it all began. A few years later,
with the help of a small transistor radio, I listened not only to the music but to the announcers on my favorite station.
I love the music of the 60’s and 70’s and I thought the on air personalities made listening to the radio fun and
exciting. It was something I wanted to be a part of.
I got my first paying job in radio in 1973. I worked at a station in a small, southern New Hampshire town doing the
6 to midnight shift.
In 1974, I moved to Franklin, PA. I again worked 6 PM to midnight. There, not only did I get the opportunity to play
the most popular music of the day, I learned to write bits, experimented with ideas, tried to emulate my favorite
announcers and honed my vocal talent. In those days, small market radio was the best place to learn and grow.
Unfortunately, the people coming up today don't always have the luxury of an open, creative environment where
they can really discover their strengths and develop their talents.
Jamestown, New York was my next stop. I'm originally from Buffalo, being so close to home was great. My stay in
Chautauqua County lasted 13 months.
January, 1977, I moved back to Buffalo. I landed a position on WKBW, a legendary top 40 station with 50,000 watts
of power. It was a real thrill to work for the station that I grew up listening to.
October, 1979, Tom Barney hired me to work as the midday announcer on WJET, when it was still an AM station. I
became one of the "Music People" on Jet 14. That’s where I met Johnny Holiday. Erie became home for my wife
Lyn and me for the next 38 years.
I jumped over to WCCK late in 1984. I was at K-104, for a little over two years.
My next stop was WXKC. When they hired me at Classy 100, in September 1987, I said that it would be my last
radio job. It almost was. Nat the Hat was there at the beginning…so was Terri Bohen and Captain Dan. My stay at
WXKC lasted thirty years. I retired from radio in 2017. My retirement only lasted 7 years. The music of the 60’s,
70’s and 80’s drew me back. To be back on the air in Erie, was also a part of the draw. It just felt right…a natural fit.
Thanks Lecom.
