His broadcasting career of more than 30 years has included stints at various radio stations in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Bill is an award-winning writer and producer of hundreds (probably thousands) of radio commercials and jingles while working for many of the major players including Clear Channel Communications and Citadel Broadcasting. As the creative director of an advertising agency, he was responsible for all aspects of television production, including script-writing, directing location shoots, and supervising the editing process. Radio has always been his first love – the only thing he’s wanted to do since he was 7 or 8 years old – so that’s where he returned as a sales executive and an on-air personality. He has always maintained that he has more long-term goals than many half his age, and has always been on the lookout for the next fun thing; he believes he’s found it with New Country Brew. Teaming up with his buddy, Kenny Morris, was an easy decision to make. Kenny’s interviewing skills, marketing abilities and determination to get the job done are key to the success of the show. You might subtitle the show, “Two old guys who love new music.” We hope you enjoy New Country Brew.
Marketing & Promotions Director
Absent musical talents of his own, Kenny always wanted to be on the air entertaining listeners, so he began dabbling in the DJ world at the early age of 16. He was told he talked too fast for radio – but that was before the era of Wolfman Jack, Cousin Brucie, and many others to follow.
In addition to being a 20+ year supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Kenny has worked many odd jobs that included ABC Records in Atlanta in the 1970’s, and owning record shops, video stores, and collector cards shops. But he kept coming back to radio. He has worked for various radio stations and was involved in other activities in the radio industry that led him to his interest in “new” artists, and finally to New Country Brew!
Advertising Sales Rep
In 2011, Lauren and her husband packed everything they had in a budget truck and moved from their hometown of Orlando, Florida to Nashville, Tennessee with $300 in their pocket. It sounded stupid at the time, but ended up being one of the best decisions they’ve ever made. Ever since then, Lauren’s been working in the music industry in artist development, radio promotion, and social media management. Add that to her background in music, theatre, and television, and you could say that she’s been in the entertainment world most of her life.
In 2014, she took a position at Grassroots Promotion, where she got to talk to these “two old guys who love new music” every week. Now, she’s excited to be running her own photography and video production business, in addition to being a part of the team here at New Country Brew with “two of the best guys in radio.”
