The ONLY Local Country Morning Show in Tampa Bay! Meet Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe!
J.R. is happy to be back in the Sunshine State with his dog Petey. He is a 16-year radio veteran originally from California with previous radio stops in Orlando and San Diego. Recently he hosted the J.R. & Beth Show for Y100 based in San Antonio. When he is not on the radio, he is riding his Harley, hanging out at the beach, boating on the Bay or checking out a Tampa Bay’s Ray game. J.R has a background in television and film, his credits include co-starring on shows such as Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” and ABC Family’s “Greek”. He was also the host of Nashville’s Rare Country Awards and is the host the Nationally syndicated 20/Twenty Country Countdown for United Stations. You can hear the countdown on Sundays at 9a on 99.5 QYK. He is a true fan of country music and looks forward to putting a smile on every Tampa Bay’s listener’s face.
Launa is a native of Minnesota and grew up in Prior Lake. She went to college at UW-Madison, WI and after that, she decided she had enough of the cold and snow and wanted to live on the beach. Launa has been in the radio game for a long time…she started out ‘rockin’ the bay on 98Rock for many years, then moved to Georgia, back to Tampa, then to Orlando, then back to Tampa… and now she has found her way to the one and only 99.5 QYK! I’m so excited to be working here on this heritage station. Launa is a huge fan of country music! She is the girl that downloads every CD and listens from beginning to end, learning every song and understanding what each song means. You can usually find her front and center in the pit at the concerts dancing and enjoying live music with her friends. When Launa is not at work, she is spending time with her dog Louie (black lab), paddle boarding, out on the boat, at the beach or hanging out with her friends.
