94.5 The Hawk program schedule
THE BOB & TOM SHOW: (5am-10am)
With a foundation built around comedy and talk, The Bob & Tom Show features news, sports, lifestyle content, and interviews with today’s top actors, and newsmakers. The show is also America’s leading media outlet for the best comedians on the circuit. More than just a comedy show, Bob & Tom also feature live performances from singers, songwriters, and musicians.
The Bob & Tom Show was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2015. The show has won five Marconi Awards, the absolute highest award in radio from the National Association of Broadcasters. The Bob & Tom Show has released over 60 comedy CD’s and DVD’s. The show also has produced specials for Comedy Central and live comedy concerts nationwide via The Bob & Tom Comedy All-Stars Tour. The Bob & Tom Show is now heard on hundreds of radio stations from coast to coast and worldwide on the American Forces Radio Network. The program airs live weekdays from 6am-10am ET. It began national syndication in 1995 from its flagship station in Indianapolis. Show parodies, songs, bits, and more are produced by a large staff of writers, musicians, artists, performers, and misfits. Let’s briefly meet some of them here:
No one on the planet has a more complicated life than Tom and it includes raising his seven children. The staff isn’t too sure what he does in his free time because he’s always, “gotta go.” From Cleveland, after bluffing his way through an Ivy League school and a radio stop in Florida, Tom formed the morning show which eventually came to Indianapolis leading to the show’s syndication.
Born in London, Ohio, Chick began his broadcasting journey in West Virginia but eventually made it to The Bob & Tom Show’s flagship station in Indianapolis. Chick, a lifelong Washington Redskins super fan, is “Your Sports Buddy.” He is the one to put Tom in his place all while delivering the occasional rim shot. From time to time, Chick assumes the role of the one and only Mr. Obvious. When not on air, you can find him at home with his “big sweeties,” aka his two dogs.
Kristi is the voice of reason in the room, all while delivering the day’s lifestyle and entertainment news. A native of Indianapolis, mother of two girls and single, Kristi’s life is a non-stop roller coaster. Add this to having to wrangle the boys in the morning from 6a-10a, her days are full and never boring.
Josh is the newest addition to the cast, even though he wasn’t the first choice (just the first to one to say yes). Josh is a single guy who’s been touring the country as a stand-up comedian for over a decade. Josh’s career in stand-up comedy was propelled by his desire to work as little as possible (up to 45 minutes a day, max), stay up late and sleep in ’til ten. Josh notes that being on The Bob & Tom morning show kinda screws up his plan, but says, he’ll work through it. With his stand-up experience and library of incredibly bad puns, Josh fits In seamlessly.
MCKENZIE RAE: (10am-3pm)
McKenzie hit the ground running in a major market with her very first job over thirty years ago. Writing, producing, programming, and being a top rated personality, she’s done it all. McKenzie’s a big fan of the outdoors. Exercising, walking her dogs, playing softball, and spending time with her daughter. She likes all kinds of music but has a passion mostly for classic rock. Led Zeppelin, Rush, Eric Clapton, and Van Halen are what she grew up with so they bring back fond memories.
DAN MITCHELL: (3pm-8pm)
Dan has been in radio for almost 40 years. His love of music began in the 60’s when he used to hear the latest hits on the Jukebox at his father’s Pool Hall. He was hooked! Dan decided in 7th grade that he wanted to be a disc jockey and never let go of that dream. He started his career in his hometown of Denver in the summer of 1980 and spent the next 36 years on the air in the same city he grew up in. He’s been married to his lovely wife Kathleen since January of 81. They have a son and a daughter and two granddaughters! Dan is an avid basketball player, movie watcher and classic car lover. He’s thrilled to still be “in the air” and rockin’!
TONY SCOTT (8p-1a): It all began with a knock on the radio station door of the American Forces Network in Taiwan, where a 17-year-old Tony Scott had moved with his family. That led to Tony working for some of America’s biggest radio stations. When not behind the mike Tony continues his delusional fantasy of being an Olympic skier, watching football, hitting as many concerts as he possibly can, and raising champion Golden Retrievers.
CARL RUSSO (1am-5am)
Carl grew up with plenty of street & strip drag racing, stock car racing, and playing musical instruments and having a good time. He would then apply that energy into rock & roll and a career in radio. A major market radio personality, TV personality, and radio station owner, he did it all. His sense of civic duty was also a priority for Carl wherever he went. He served as a fireman in many cities where he’s worked.
