Hi, I’m Dana Marshall. Not only did I grow up in SW Michigan but I started my career right here at WKFR. Back in 1991 I interned for a guy you may have heard of, Dave Benson. Since then I've gained about 10 lbs....in my face. After doing radio all over the country I've come back home. Outside of playing Today's Best Music during your work day. I'll also take you waaaaay back with the Retro Lunch Hour at Noon.
Been doing this a long time. At KFR since '87. Had an awful lot of fun through the years here. This is one special radio station. Also, since coming to Kalamazoo, both my sons were born here, and are living here now. Michael works for the schools, and David is a freshman at Western. The love of my life is Kathy. She's my best friend and the hottest woman alive.
My interest in radio first started in high school where I was the night DJ every Thursday from 8 to 11PM on 89.5 WAHS at Avondale High School in Auburn Hills. After I knew that radio is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I started broadcasting school at Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts in October of 2003. After graduating I got my first real job in Tawas MI at a small country station 104.7 WKJC. After 5 months of doing weekends and filling in for the full time staff I landed my first full time job in Athens OH
At an early age, I knew I belonged on the air, because I would host my own radio show in my bedroom with stuffed animals. Radio has always been my passion. After graduating high school, I attended the Ohio Center for Broadcasting and landed an internship at a local rock station in Columbus, Ohio, where I eventually earned a full-time slot. After 5 years of working in Columbus, I decided to move to the Jersey Shore to work mornings. No, I did not meet Snooki or rock the "poof!" :P After 1 year in New Jersey, I decided to move to Michigan to start working at 103
