Josh was born and raised in Mansfield, Ohio and was fortunate enough to grow up with nearly every member of his extended family living nearby and attending the same church. Family is still very important to Josh, and he’s been blessed with his wife, Jennifer, and their four kids (all 6 years old or younger!).
In fact, evenings after the show and on the weekends you can find Josh playing with the kids in the back yard bouncing on the trampoline, hitting whiffle balls, throwing a football around, shooting hoops or pushing the little ones on their swingset.
Josh is thrilled to be a part of the team, and you can hear him weekday mornings from 6am – 10am.
Andy has been in and around a radio station most of his life. His father was a broadcast engineer; he fixed things, in upstate New York. So, it was only natural for Andy to get into radio. That was back in ’87, playing everything from Big Bands, Rock, Country, Bluegrass, Shag (Carolina Dance Music) and Pop.
Along the way Andy met his wife Kathryn and started his family which, at current count, includes four boys, two dogs, two geckos and whatever else the boys have hiding in the house that Andy and Kathryn have yet to discover.
In his spare time, Andy likes to play guitar at church and video games with the boys.
You can hear Andy Weekdays 10am - 2pm.
Born and raised in Galion, Ohio, Eric got his start in broadcasting at the tender age of 17. Now all grown-up, he and his lovely wife, Mary, are the parents of three great kids; Ashton, Kaley and Eli.
After six years with a national Christian radio group, Eric is thankful to get back to his roots and close to family here in Central Ohio. He is humbled and honored to be a part of The River Family.
When he’s not on the air, you might find him in the air. Since earning his private pilot’s license in 2010, he enjoys renting small airplanes and taking brave friends and family up for an amazing view.
One of Eric’s favorite verses comes from Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good…”
You can hear Eric weekdays from 2pm - 7pm.
Sherry Abel thinks she is hip because she socializes on the internet. You can mostly find her on Facebook, or Twitter. Her Myspace is often neglected because she has also has a real life.
Raising a family, caring for friends, Children's Ministry at church and a monthly breakfast at a homeless shelter consume her time.
About her family, her husband is a professional computer geek. Her three sons, one college, one elementary and one preschool keep her busy and in prayer. The baby has autism, so please pray so we can see God work miracles.
Her life in Christ started with occasionally going to church when she was small, wearing fancy dresses and being told to be quiet and stop squirming. Growing up in a single mom home left a lot of room for God's grace, even though she wasn't fully aware of it. In high school her friends said they were Christians but didn't act like it. Pregnant at 17 feeling very alone, she cried out for the sake of her baby to a God she didn't know. It turned out He knew her all along and had been waiting.
Now following after Jesus with the good support of her church, friends and family, Sherry has what she considers to be a huge opportunity. Sharing Jesus in a real life way with anyone who can listen to The River.
