Austin Daniels


Music Director

Austin DanielsI got my start in radio in February of 1995 from a mysterious stranger who recommended me to then 97.5 KWVS – The Waves “Classic Rock.”  I began working the overnight shift and within six weeks I went to mid-days. In May 1995, we changed our format to country and I was in Heaven! Under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Nelson Stratton, I have learned the in and outs of production, programming, management, and public service. My ultimate goal is to work in Houston, TX as a jock and music programmer. Until then, I am very happy to be a part of the Quality Broadcasting family.
