The Morning Press

Weekday mornings from 6-10, you get the news, traffic, and weather you need to get out the door, but so much more with long-time hosts Jim Reynolds and Kevin West – quarterbacked by Talk Monster stalwart Brian Joyce!

James Lee Reynolds III, known better as JR, a three-decade voice of the Mocs, the most trusted sports voice in the region, is also a political savant. He’ll laser-beam the essence of the issue of the day and make you think of things you never have before in ways you never have before. That’s why he’s a member of the Tennessee Radio hall of Fame, not to mention the Mocs hall of Fame and the Greater Chattanooga Area Sports hall of Fame.

Program & News Director Kevin West holds the Morning Press together with the aforementioned news, traffic, and weather and even a little bit of opinion. With awards for Best newscast, Continuing News, investigative Reporting, and Feature Reporting in the 30+ years he has been on Chattanooga radio, he’ll make sure you don’t miss anything – whether it’s local, regional, national, or international. Kevin travels the world as a public affairs officer in the United States Navy Reserve.
