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!

But yesterday, it didn't feel right. As a broadcaster, a country music fan and as a person, I str...
