President / On-Air Personality (Weekdays 6am-10am)

RYAN

Born and raised in Maine and lived in New England all my life!  I started having a passion for radio in high school. I interned on a local sports talk show on WTVL-FM / Waterville, ME doing sports trivia. Then I began my full-time job at WWWA-FM / Augusta, ME in 1999, where I had the privilege of becoming the station manager for The Worship-FM Network.  After 13 years of doing radio in Maine, God was leading me to help start-up THE Q90.1 in 2012.

 

I love to travel, especially to places with beaches and water!  I LOVE Mexican food!  I could eat tacos several times a week!  I'm a big fan of all New England sports teams (Sox, Pats, Celts & B's).  I enjoy swimming and playing volleyball.  Oh and if you like playing board games or cards, I'm there!!!  I love being with family and serving with my church family in student ministry and technology!  I love to share life, faith & God's amazing goodness through His Son, Jesus here at THE Q!

JOE

My wife, Nicole, and I got married in 2005 and we have a two daughters (born in 2008 and 2010). We also have a yorkie-poo who is a female, so I welcome male guests in our house at any time.

 

I have been in radio since the day I left college in 2001. I literally packed up my dorm room after my last final and drove the Uhaul to Maine and started my new career the next day.

 

Some things about me? I don't like coffee. I love pizza and um... pizza. I enjoy Cream Soda. I love watching and playing sports. The family dog? Yea, she is not theirs, he is mine. She loves me the best. I love hats and wear them whenever possible. I had a seizure in fall 2014 and my family has seen God work in amazing ways through that and since that situation. He if always faithful.

On-Air Personality (Weekdays 2pm-5pm)

ANGELA

I'm a recent graduate of Cedarville University's Broadcasting program and spent my summers in college interning within the Christian music business. I had the opportunity to intern with an artist manager, a record label, and a radio station, and have been working in Christian radio since graduating college in 2012.

 

I'm passionate about my Canadian husband, Brandon, honest music and honest conversations, and my Doberman/Shepherd mix, Timber. I love to travel (but I'm kind of sick of flying) and be outside (especially if it means a bike ride with my little brothers). I'm excited to hang out with you during the afternoons on The Q 90.1!

MATT

I did my first  radio show on a pretend station in my bedroom at the age of nine. By 13, I was actually on the air at a college station in my hometown and got my first paying job in radio in high school and have been doing it ever since!

 

I'm a family guy who absolutely adores my kids — Arianna and Emerson. 

 

I love music, sports, techie gadgets and Jesus!  I'm active in my church, serving as a Life Group leader for four years and as audio leader for the worship team for the past 13 years.

 

I started The Uplift Radio Show after seeing so much depression and sadness in this world, people struggling, people hurting. There’s so much darkness in a lot the world around us. I wanna be a light in the darkness, an encourager, a hope dealer pointing people toward the ultimate hope — Jesus!

KIM

My husband and I were middle school sweethearts and now are happily married with two beautiful children. 
I started working in radio right out of high school in 2001 and thrilled to be a part of The Q90.1 family!

I love being with my family, (furbabies included).  Enjoy getting lost in the woods, listening to new music, and sharing my stories of my faith journey and the love of Jesus Christ. 

 

I work on my family’s miniature farm and hopes to one day have it full of adopted animals. I just has to convince my husband that adopting every animal in the world is a necessity.

PENNY

From the second I heard the big radio stations in Boston, MA, God had put it on my heart that this is what I was meant to do. I feel very blessed to be able to share contagious encouragement on The Q90.1.  Life can be difficult at times, but sometimes all you need is a little reminder that God IS there and He IS in control....you are NOT alone.

 

I'm thrilled to be the mother of 3 beautiful boys, and an amazing husband.
