WHIO Radio Staff
Meet the Award-Winning WHIO Radio Staff
Larry Hansgen has been the host of Miami Valley’s Morning News since 2003. He joined the staff of WHIO Radio in 1981 as an overnight board operator, and quickly rose through the ranks.
I am so excited to be the News Director for WHIO radio. I was born and raised right here in the Miami Valley. I got my start with WHIO during a career mentorship class I took during my senior year at Tippecanoe High School.
Since I was a small child, I wanted to be a professional baseball player. Since that didn’t work out, I switched to “Plan B”, which was broadcasting.
I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio which makes me a true “native Daytonian!” I graduated from Patterson Co-op High School and became an Air Force Reservist just out of High School.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Storm Center 7 team. WHIO is an outstanding news operation and I am happy to call the Miami Valley my new home.
I’m excited to join WHIO and the Storm Center 7 weather team! I come to the Miami Valley from Texas, where I spent four years working as a meteorologist.
I’m a native New Yorker who’s called Dayton home for over 20 years. Though my radio career started in NYC, it’s really “taken flight” here at WHIO.
I was born and raised in Dayton, and I suppose my interest in broadcasting goes all the way back to some time in the early 1960's.
Tom Michaels is in his 38th year of broadcasting, working around the world during his career.The Kettering native was sports director of WKEF-TV and WING Radio before beginning his first stint at WHIO radio in 1989 as the morning show co-host with Lou Emm.
I have been in radio since the late 1990's, working in many capacities for several stations around the great state of Ohio.
I am one of the newest members of the WHIO team, joining Cox Media Group in May 2013. I have started out my career as an anchor, reporter, and producer for WHIO-AM/FM and will also report on traffic for both radio and WHIO-TV.
I was told years ago that you don't get into radio. Radio gets into you. How true that's been. After finishing up my brief stint with the United States Air Force at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, I decided to hang around the Dayton area.
Growing up in Troy, I was fortunate enough to spend bits of my childhood listening to WHIO radio while visiting my grandmother, who was an avid Newstalk 1290 follower.
I’ve always wanted to be in broadcasting. I joined WHIO Radio in 2002 after graduating from the University of Dayton and have worked every shift (overnights, evenings, middays, weekends, etc.
I just joined the WHIO team recently. Born and raised in the Midwest, I graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota (where I met my wife), before moving on to my first radio job as a news anchor/producer at News Radio 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
