Webster

M-F 6am-9am

John Webster-Born and raised in “nort deest Pee Yay.” Age? Let’s just say I remember when Captain Kangaroo was the clown on the Howdy Doody show. Approximately zero percent athletic ability but I didn’t let that stop me from being the ‘star’ 2nd baseman for Gildea’s Pharmacy. To compound my dorkiness and make matters even worse I took accordion lessons as a kid.In high school I tried out for football but that was way too much like work. Opted instead to wear the cougar suit at football games. (Opposing team cheerleaders think it’s cute when ‘the cougar’ paws them.)Squeezed 4 years into 5 ½ at East Stroudsburg University, “The Cheapest Resort in the Poconos” graduating with a BS (heh) degree in education. Yes, I was supposed to be a teacher and if I had followed that path I’D BE RETIRED NOW! (I blame my guidance counselors for not seeing the lazy streak a mile wide in me.)Been in radio since 1980 beginning with a part-time news job on Saturday mornings at WCDL in Carbondale. WILK is the 4th station I’ve worked at. The first was a Sunoco.Married my lovely wife Karen in 1983, we have two great (grown) kids, John and Emily. I play the Powerball like it’s my job.
