On Air

KQBZ On Air Schedule M-F

6a-10a Bob James

Well friends it’s been an interesting  40+ years! My first “on air shift” was in the fall of 1979. I first entered the Brownwood market in 1996 and am now the longest tenured radio personality currently on the air. It’s always an honor to share your mornings with you!

10a-2p Andrea Jaxson

Andrea Jaxson

I’m Andrea Jaxson and when I’m not on the radio, there is a good chance you will find me making plans to travel to a new, fun and exciting city or country. My
husband Mike, A.K.A “Marvelous Mike”, is completely supportive of my need to
capture the perfect “shot” while I roam the streets looking for unique architecture and
landscape. We share a love for music, art and travel which makes for a fun life
together! I absolutely love sharing time with my nieces and nephews and as soon as
football season rolls around, it’s all about food, family and dark chocolate!

2p-7p Karl Southcott

Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the
classic films to all the new exciting flicks. I enjoy the outdoors too, and am crazy
about being around the water. I love swimming, kayaking, surfing and diving. I’ve
always figured that I’m at least part fish. I also like to hang with my family. My two
small boys keep me very busy! Musically, I’m crazy about everything from Sinatra
to Bruno Mars. Sharing this music on the radio is such a kick!

7p-12a Jay Michaels

My name is Jay, and I’m so excited to get to hang out with you
every weeknight! I love reality TV and tweet way too much, ohh yeah, I
sometimes buy stuff I shouldn’t buy off TV (I have way too many “as seen on
TV” appliances in the kitchen!) I tell people I’m a foodie but, I’m really just a
picky eater. Ohh yeah, I’m terrified of squirrels and ceiling fans. Feel free to
connect with me on social media anytime and say hi! @JayMichaels

12a-5a John Laurenti

John Laurenti

Hi, I’m John Laurenti! Thanks for taking a little bit of your time to find
out about me. I’ve been fortunate to have been doing this radio thing for a while
and it’s the best job I’ve ever had! Every day is different and fun! Plus, I get to
play music for you. In my spare time I try to go to as many concerts as I can,
2,500 and counting, playing golf (badly), and I’ve done a little bit of acting as
well. I’ll see you on the radio!

5a-6a Liz & Chris

Chris & Liz

Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme
parties, read that as ‘Pinterest addict.’ I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy
ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris
Tyler. *** Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run
marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool. And I’m a
huge sports fan. It’s hard for me to choose a favorite type of music! I like many
different types! Except maybe Gangsta Rap. I have to draw the line somewhere. ☺
