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.

Dierks Bentley gives 1,000 to his employees & Miranda Lambert’s enjoying domestic bliss

Luke Bryan says for the safety of everyone, his Nashville bar/restaurant, Luke’s 32 Bridge is closed until further notice. Jason Aldean, Alan Jackson and Blake Shelton have all done the same. So has Dierks Bentley but he’s giving his fulltime employees $1,000 to help with lost wages. Tyler Hubbard’s wife, Hayley says, turn off the media, stop googling and go for a walk or a hike instead. Michael Ray and Carly Pierce say being at home means lots of Netflix and Halo Top ice cream.

It sounds like Miranda Lambert and her husband are enjoying their marriage and are all about domestic bliss right now and have been for a while. They also both love that Brendan doesn’t have to go back to New York for his career.

Maren Morris’s son is due March 30. She says the charm of pregnancy has worn off. She’ll have to get back in shape quickly tho as her RSVP Tour, kicks off June 5.

Finally – the best thing about success for Luke Combs is he’s been able to buy his parents things they couldn’t afford before. He’s getting to watch them live their dreams too.
