faces made for radio!
President A.P. Harreld is a veteran broadcaster who has worked for stations in nine states, both on-air and in sales. A.P. is blessed with verbal creativity but profoundly lacks in spatial relations, the sciences and anything mechanical. The College of William and Mary graduate writes all company copy and voices Finding Home, Fortune Swelling, Hardwood Heroes and That Hurts! The unique University of Georgia fan who follows Bulldogs basketball more passionately than football, A.P. enjoys dogs, deep-sea fishing, Porsches, saltwater aquariums and promoting human liberty.
V.P. for Production Kent Greystoke is the on-air name for a longtime broadcaster raised in the Natural State's Mississippi Delta region. With decades of experience on-air, in production and in sales, Kent's paramount industry strength is his ability to parrot innumerable voices, a skill he inadvertently began developing at age nine. A professional musician who has performed across the USA, the singer, keyboardist, guitarist and harmonica-player lists Carlsbad, California, and Perth, Australia, as his two favorite places. A student of both weather forecasting and baseball history, the voice of Feature Creatures, Seeing Success, Mission Accomplished, My America and Pigskin Pride has tremendous vocal range, voicing cartoons in one session and then industrial audio in the next. Kent, a canine enthusiast, favors Lhasa Apsos, Golden Retrievers and the odd Poodle. The die-hard Padres fan always enjoys a well-prepared Southern breakfast and lists the Beatles as his favorite musical group. But he says that it was the great Harry Nilsson who taught him how to sing.
V.P. for Client Relations Ben Taylor holds both a Bachelor's and Juris Doctorate from The College of William and Mary. A Captain in the Army Reserve, Ben is a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. He also teaches prep courses for the LSAT and officiates baseball and basketball. An energetic student of comedy, Ben has toured as cast member with The San Diego Chicken and is also a graduate of the Wendelstedt Umpire School. The avid runner and reader enjoys British history, political philosophy, Seinfeld reruns, logical reasoning and the occasional trip to Cracker Barrel.

Late Williamsburg, VA radio personality, real estate broker, auctioneer and William & Mary athletics backer nonpareil Bob Sheeran gave me my first crack at commercial radio at AM 740 WMBG, where weekdays he served as host of The Wake-Up Call. A relentlessly-positive people-person, Bob was a third-generation W&M alumnus who touched the lives of countless members of the Tribe family. Undoubtedly personal witness to more W&M football games than anyone in school history, Bob retired from his role as the team's color commentator just months before his passing. Below is my audio tribute to this generous soul. - A.P.
