Josh Michaels

Kicks Morning Crew Co-Host

I was born and raised in Northwest Ohio in a little town called New Riegel. It's a one stop light town that if you blink you might miss. But I loved it! I'm a diehard Ohio State Buckeye fan, Cleveland sports fan, and self-proclaimed pro wrestling guru. I'm a proud graduate of Heidelberg University, alumni of WHEI-TV 10 & the "100-watt tower of power" WHEI 88.9-FM and recently completed a Masters Degree from Southern New Hampshire University.

I LOVE country music, sharing new music I've discovered and social media. Connect with me on Facebook & Twitter!

Kaysie Chase with The Kicks Morning Crew

Radio has been a major part of my life since before I can even remember.  Growing up watching my father Host a popular Western Michigan country morning shows sparked my passion to become an on-air personality. Due to my major in advertising at Western Michigan University and my experience as a marketer my communication skills have grown exponentially and I have found out that MORNING radio is my true calling. So I decided to pack my bags say goodbye to Kalamazoo and head to Richmond to join the Kicks Morning crew!!

Father of two, former member of City Council, actively trying to support my community. Why I love doing this show is because our community (Wayne County, Indiana) has so many positive things going for it.
