Who's that with the beautiful, soulful voice on WPCD? It is none other than Scott Chambers, aka Tony Two-Coats, brings his wisdom and amazing voice to the airwaves every Thursday morning 8 to 10. He is a transfer student in his second semester at Parkland. He hopes to pursue a career in radio and/or voice-over work. He loves interacting with guests using incredibly witty banter with a touch of prince charming. When he is on the airwaves, don't touch that dial!

Ben Johnston is probably one of the biggest nerds you’ll ever see, even though his performances on The Traffic Jam on Tuesday and Thursday from 4-6 PM, along with Rapid Talk Radio on Saturdays from 8-10 PM, would say otherwise. Ben is known for his attempt at humor, even though he rarely succeeds at the joke. That mild roadblock out of the way, he is very carefree and can often be seen playing a huge array of games. After college, Ben plans on going into the broadcasting industry, whether it’s TV or Radio.

Hi! I'm Jake Kiser. I was born and raised in Champaign county, amongst all
the corn crops and farmland, and I have always had a passion for music and
audio. Beyond that, I¹m not that good on writing about myself. I¹m
generally very quiet unless you get to know me; then I¹m not bad to be
around. I might crack the occasional joke or pun.

Hi everyone! I’m Robert Ottney, one of your DJs here at 88.7 WPCD FM, and I love it! Originally, I came to Parkland College to pursue a degree in Automotive Technology, but after a year of listening to the college radio station, I decided to switch paths to Broadcast Announcing and immediately fell in love with it. I hope to gain an internship at a local radio station in 2017 so that I may expand my work experience in the radio industry. My dream job is recording advertisements and spots to be used on-air (or being a rockstar in a band, but let's be realistic haha). I plan to keep my show on WPCD for as long as I’m taking classes at Parkland College and I look forward to playing your suggested tracks on-air. So, give the station a call during my show every Friday from 2-4pm! I’ll be glad you did!

Charles “Chuck” Snell started his radio career in the fall of 2015 here on 88.7 WPCD. He is planning on transferring to the U of I soon in order to get his Bachelor’s in Communications to help expand his passion. He currently hosts the Mystery Box Hour on Friday’s at noon, where he gives facts and news about rock and alternative music from all generations and “sneaks” some of that music in to put the “learn” in “listen, learn and live on WPCD.” When he isn’t on the station, he enjoys spending his time playing video games, drawing and listening to the old-school rock and roll music that he wants to show the world.
