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.

Blake Shelton performs tonight on NBC’s Red Nose Day Special & Jason Aldean’s daughter rushed to the emergency room

Jason Aldean’s 3-month-old daughter Navy was rushed to the emergency room Monday night after her temperature got to 104 degrees. She had some kind of stomach bug and was finally able to go home yesterday where she’s getting better. When Jason kicks off his tour Saturday, his one-year-old son Memphis will be along. While he’ll be in bed by the time Jason takes the stage, Memphis will get to go to sound check. The Aldean’s also just hired their first ever nanny.

When Chris Janson graduated from high school, he drove to Nashville. When he pulled his car into the alley between the Ryman and Tootsie’s, he had no idea that would be his home for the first 2 ½ months. Even tho he was sleeping in his car and playing for tips, Chris says he still felt like he was making it.

Ever since he was young, Brett Eldredge has struggled with panic attacks and anxiety. He says what helps now is exercise, being outside and an app called, Ten Percent Happier.

Finally – Blake Shelton performs tonight on NBC’s Red Nose Day Special. They’ll raise money to ensure children in need are safe, healthy and educated across the world.
