Why I love X1039: I always loved listening to X1039 ever since middle school. Even when I lived in Los Angeles, I never stopped listening. I could never get into the Rap/Pop/Techno music scene that all my friends were into so I decided to listen to what I love. The X isn't like other radio stations it makes you feel like your part of a bigger community even part of a family.
Favorite X1039 Artist: Three Days Grace: It's Never Too Late
Favorite Concert/Event:I loved working the Monday/Thursday Night Football game nights at Hooters and Dave & Busters, just the energy of all the people coming out to support their teams is amazing and I loved the Merry Meltdown 2014 Concert, my first ever concert and I'm grateful to have worked and attended it with the Xteam.

Why they love X1039 - I have always been obsessed with radio growing up and during my freshman year in high school i discovered X1039 and it became the only station i would listen to. So i guess in a way i was living my early teen years with X1039 playing in the background and i feel at that age you really discover what bands or artists you really like, the X was huge part of that for me. They play great music and they really shine a light on up-and-coming artists, which is great for people like me who are always looking for new music. I'm obviously really excited about working with my favorite radio station and it's a great experience learning about an industry you are interested in from the same company that originally sparked that enthusiasm.
Favorite artist or song- Kings of Leon is my favorite band, has been since i was in junior high and probably will be for the rest of my life. Their second album "Aha Shake Heartbreak" was the first album i ever fell in love with and simultaneously ignited my passion for music. When I'm listening to the X and a Kings of Leon song comes on i get very excited.
Favorite concert/event - Merry Meltdown was awesome! It was a fun show and i learned a lot which is always great. Music shows are always fun.
