Nat the Hat

Nat comes from a large musical family. She got her first transistor radio at the age of six and was "hooked." Her Daddy bought her first real six string, a Fender Mustang, at the age of 11, and she was "hooked." Next up, the theatre, and she was "hooked." The theatre major got her first radio gig and she was "hooked." She got her first derby and was "hooked." It's all about the music with Nat the Hat. It's all about entertaining, It's all about sharing her God given talents and working with the GREATEST legends of all time, on the GREATEST hits of all time!

Rick Johnson

I guess I have been a radio “geek” since the tender age of 5 years old. I remember begging my parents to get me a radio of my own. As a youngster I remember tuning in all those magic AM stations I could receive from across the country at night. Being originally from the Chicago land area I grew up listening to the two 50KW flame throwers WLS and WCFL. Not long after high school I joined the Navy and got my first actual “break” in broadcasting with American Forces Radio. When I left the Navy, I landed my first gig in real radio and never looked back. With several radio stations behind me and a lot of experience I am so happy to be part of Lecom radio, and my favorite part of that is you, the listeners.

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.
