Noël Blackhall comes to Media One Group as a third-generation "radio junkie". As a child, she would sit with her grandfather and listen to different stations on his collection of radios. Her father, "DJ Dave", is an entertainment disk-jockey in his free time in their hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Noël has a fine-tuned background in sports, but her heart lies with hockey. During her undergrad studies at Mercyhurst University, Noël co-hosted her own sports show and worked as an on-air reporter and announcer for the Mercyhurst Men's Hockey team. As icing on the cake, she also completed an internship with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016. She was part of the multimedia production crew and assisted in the 50th anniversary documentary "Pittsburgh is Home". When she's not on-air at the station, Noël enjoys taking ballet classes and working with animals. Noël is thrilled to be part of the Media One Group team. She hopes her hard work can live up to the past and present legends that have broadcast at the Orchard Road stations.

Lee John: As a child, I would sit at our kitchen table and listen to the old radio on our counter belt out the sound of the morning "Disc Jockey". He would introduce the Top 40 Hits, give the weather forecast, talk to the "Characters" that called in, do interviews and contests. Radio was very "Magical" to me. I began pretending I was a "Disc Jockey" when I was about ten years old and actually have a tape of me when I was twelve, hosting the " Lee John Morning Show", doing interviews, comedy, telling stories and giving a "Play by Play" account of the "GUY LOMBARDO NEW YEARS EVE PARTY" on the TV. I started to do impressions when I was a kid, like Ed Sullivan, W.C. Fields, Kermit the Frog, etc. By the time I was 16 years old I did over 100 voices. I entertained at parties, fairs, and in theater productions in High School and did some voiceover work for my local radio station. I got my first job in Radio during my first year in College. I was honored to join SE-93 in 2001 because of its wonderful history and proud place in this community. Email Lee and listen Weekday's 6-10a on SE93, Noon-3p on WJTN and 3-7p on ROCK 103!

Matt Mueller: I’ve had an interest in music and radio since I can remember. My parents are licensed amateur radio operators and talk to people all over the world. That was really cool to me when I was younger. So I studied, took the test and passed! I've been a licensed amateur radio operator since 2007. K2MAT I tuned into Fm radio all the time while growing up. The goofy shows and personalities always caught my attention. I’d record songs onto cassettes so I could play it back in my room and introduce them myself. Ha! My friends and I started a band back in high school. We wanted to record our songs to show people, so we recorded on whatever cheap equipment we had at the time. It wasn't perfect, but it was A LOT of fun! I enjoyed it so much that I studied audio engineering and production at SUNY JCC for bands and voice overs. I started at Media One Group in 2013 as a part-time board operator and moved up the ladder to Production Manager and On-Air Personality. It's great to spend every day doing what I love at Media One! You can tune me in Sunday Night when I host The Homegrown Show on ROCK 103! Email Matt

Dan Warren: I was born and raised in Dunkirk NY. That's where I started working in radio in high school. To be honest, I actually had a radio station in my attic at home, but it consisted of a record player, an old reel to reel tape machine and a plastic microphone I found in our basement. So I guess that doesn't count. I worked at WDOE in Dunkirk, and WBUZ in Fredonia (before the FCC yanked their license). I am a SUNY Alfred grad, and a SUNY Fredonia grad. I was also fortunate enough to work at WPHD-FM in Buffalo. I worked in beautiful Punta Gorda, Florida for a year before returning back home to work in Jamestown. I love waking everyone up with the "My County Morning Show" on WHUG. My other job: I have my own business, Dan Warren's Entertainment Express. I provide music for parties, weddings, school dances and such. I also have a complete karaoke set-up which I take out quite frequently. Maybe I'll see you out and about some time, or if you're in need of a disc jockey for an event, give me a holler! Email Dan and listen Weekday's 6-Noon on WHUG and 9a-Noon on WJTN.

When not on the radio, I love reading books, especially mystery and thriller novels, and I'm an avid Buffalo sports fan. You'll find me watching, and often yelling, at the Sabres, Bills, Bisons, and Bandits, but loving every minute of it. Email Matt and listen Weekdays from Noon-3p on WHUG and during the Chautauqua Season on WJTN.
