Morning Show & General Manager
Waking up with Wayne Gardner on the radio has become a comfortable habit for thousands of Gulf Coast residents for over three decades. February 2009 marked the 35th year for Wayne in Mobile radio. A lot of country music, a big helping of sports and a dash of rock and roll have led Wayne to this point …FM Talk 1065. With experience as an announcer, program director, general manager and station owner, he is not only ready for his new challenge…there is a lot on his mind to talk about. You can hear Wayne and his partners Sean Sullivan and Dr. Bill Williams every weekday morning from six until eight and weekends on FM Talk 1065 Outdoors.
Morning Show & Operations Director
A confirmed contrarian; Sean Sullivan has been stirring up the Mobile radio market since 1995 when returned to his home town to ply his radio trade. Opinionated, funny and completely befuddled by the domestic normalcy of his life Sean has finally landed in the radio job he was born to do, in the city he loves. Sean has proven that bribery works by winning the best D.J. in Mobile award 6 years in a row as awarded by the readers of the arts and entertainment newspaper Lagniappe. He has also won Mobile Bay Monthly’s “Best of the Bay” several times and is the Susan Lucci of the Mobile Register’s “Reader’s Choice” poll for favorite air personality. Sean’s rock and roll conservatism brings a unique angle to local news and current events. His pairing with Wayne Gardner on the FM Talk 1065 morning show brings 50 years of combined radio experience to the air.
