Greg (Page) 12-8-15Radio was an interest that developed for Greg in High School and grew in College to become a true passion. These days he enjoys that every weekday afternoon it gives him a chance, on the radio and online, to share with others.  From the music and his love of it, to gaming, movies, tech, family and more.

Originally from Illinois, Greg moved to Cookeville in 2000 and worked at Kicks 106-9 doing a nightly call-in show.  Cookeville made it’s mark on him and so did being a part of Cookeville radio. After moving away for a while Greg returned to the area and then the airwaves in Cookeville as the eventual host of Rock 93-7’s 9 O’Clock News, weeknights from 9p – Midnight.
