Chuck D (6:00am – 10:00am ET)
Born in the hills and hollers of West Virginia, Chuck D made his way west to the other Mountain State, Colorado, right after college. Since then he has travelled all over this great nation of ours (in fact, of all 50 states, there are only two he has yet to visit-can you guess which two?). He loves movies and music (naturally) and spends a great deal of time fawning over his lovely wife and two sons. Now, if he could just get a few minutes alone in the bathroom from time to time, life would be perfect.
Cathy Taylor (10:00am – 3:00pm ET)
For Cathy, life is about music, family, friends and the outdoors. Her thrill-seeking side has led her to diving the Mexican reefs, jumping out of a plane, and teaching herself to ski & (painful weeks later) to snowboard. Her side-kick for 17 years is Munchkin the Cat. He actually never leaves the house, but the stray she rescued couldn’t go unmentioned. Cathy’s a USF graduate (Go Bulls!) who likes to read, meet new people, learn new things, but mostly, to get out there and live!
Michael Gifford (3:00pm – 8:00pm ET)
Fun loving Michael “The Giff” Gifford was raised in the Rocky Mountains. He and his wife of over 20 years are nutty dog lovers (labs/lab mix) and his two daughters keep him scratching his head daily. The family loves to travel and Giff is into golfing, hiking, camping… just about everything outdoors… except large animals that could eat him. His wife thinks he spends more time in the garden than he does with her, but she does enjoy the “fruits” of his labor.
Krystal Pino (8:00pm – 1:00am ET)
Krystal is a 2005 graduate of Colorado State University and has been on the move ever since. She loves live music, anything to do with the outdoors and she is definitely a tomboy at heart. You can always find her catching up on her favorite sports teams or brushing up her stand-up act. She's a low maintenance, easy going, freckle-faced klutz.

Angie Austin (1:00am – 6:00am ET)
Angie likes puppies, long walks on the beach and soup. (Just kidding… sort of) She’s a super busy mother of three young kids, so Angie spends a large portion of her days tying shoes, cleaning up spilled milk and breaking up arguments. But as all moms know, it's actually more fun than it sounds. Especially because she’s managed to train her husband to do all the cleaning! Angie’s “loves” are her faith, her husband, her kids, her backyard, and doing radio!
