I vowed in 1978 to work in radio until they started asking me to get up before daybreak every day. That was 32 years ago. So much for sticking by my guns... - Harlin

I’m Lia. The host. The Facilitator. The sticky substance that holds the stories together with the songs. I’m the gal who can’t for the life of me keep a secret yet everyone seems to tell me their secrets anyway.
I love my job. I’m happily married to the luckiest guy on earth, Chad. I have 4 kids. All of them smart, spoiled and love country music.
In my spare time I play word games, mind games, and lock myself in the bathroom for 5 minutes of peace at least once a day.
Listen in on my ramblings Monday - Friday from 7pm to Midnight

Ed Button is the News Director for the Ozark Radio Network and one of the curators of www.ozarkareanetwork.com.
Ed hails from St. Louis and has wanted to work in radio since he was 12 years old. After graduating from the Broadcast Center in St. Louis with honors, Ed moved to West Plains and began working with KDY in April 2009.
When he isn't keeping you informed on the latest happenings in south-central Missouri and north-central Arkansas, he's immersing himself in music, movies, video games or writing.
Jenny D, a Colorado native, with a degree in journalism from Colorado State University, believes that every moment in life has a soundtrack that you get to pick out for yourself. Live through music, live through a dream, or live through life, let each day be monumental.
Some of her fondest memories are rocking out to the radio in the back of her mom’s vintage, metallic green Ford mustang, which is where her love for music began. She has a knack for making people laugh, a true gift for sarcasm, and keep up with her, because she likes to keep it real on the radio.
So, relax, because when you spend some time with her, hopefully you get that laid back, warm and fuzzy feeling, like the end of a good John Hughes movie. Let’s face it, at the end of the day, we should all believe in happy endings.
