They climbed our transmitter
tower again on Wednesday, April 9th, and brought down all
the bad equipment. Just how bad was it?
That's steel & copper...melted by whatever happened up there
the night of January 3rd. The next step, weather permitting?
Seeing if it can get fixed, bringing it back up, plugging it
in, and see if everything does indeed light up. We're hoping
to get to it soon, but as everyone who's been following
along with this saga knows, “hoping” and reality don't often
occupy the same time frame.
But we'll see. So keep keeping your fingers crossed, please!

Greetings Loyal Listener!
Let me say first off, thank you for listening loyally! We
appreciate you! I'm new in town and I feel a great
responsibility to you. Please allow me to introduce
myself--my name is Jennifer Stephens and I am the new host
of the morning show at Q-107 WMQT. We decided to get really
wild and crazy and subversive and call it “The Jen Show”.
I'm actually not technically, completely new in town as I
get credit for time served. I am a proud Wildcat alumni.
After attending Northern Michigan University I have
maintained a lengthy, loving, long-distance affair with one
of the coolest places on earth. I am ecstatic to be back
permanently after decades of maintaining ties with family
here, visiting for ski trips and annual gems like Seafood
I'm already driving everyone on staff here crazy because my
frame of reference is over 20 years old! (I still call
Younkers- Prange's). I drove around for almost an hour the
other day trying to go grocery shopping at Angeli's and
sadly -- just asked an old college friend if he wanted to
meet me at the Donors Room. I have such warm, wonderful
memories--camping and the rope swing out at Forestville, the
National Hockey Championship, driving out to the island to
say 'Hi' to The Lake. The day I pulled into town with the
moving crew from Chicago we stopped at The Portside for
their breadsticks with the garlic cheese spread--they are
still exactly the way I remember them...delectable and
aH-mazzzing. It's reassuring to see all the old stalwarts
like Getz's and Johnson's Printing where I had my first
resumes made, the ore dock and Picnic Rocks and of course
the soundtrack to all of it has
always been Q-107!! To be a part of such a legacy station is
an honor I am ready to prove myself worthy of.
So enough reminiscing!! I'm excited to get reacquainted with
places like Togo's(does everyone still do #8?), but I want
to explore everything new too and that's why I'm reaching
out to you! First and foremost -- I need to find the cutest
place in the world to live. I need to find a nice salon
where I can get my hair and nails done. Where do you go? I'm
a coffee freak - where is a really cool place for great
coffee? What do you think is the perfect diner for Sunday
breakfast? And where oh where can I shop for anything and
everything! My favorite verb! Shopping! Shopping for
clothes, shoes, home decor, books, pet supplies, gardening
supplies and accessories. I need to start fresh with
everything from a new mechanic/auto repair and maintenance
garage to a glass shop to repair the antique mirror that
froze and shattered during my move :( Stupid cold weather.
I need ideas for fun stuff to do, resources I can use as a
new resident and businesses that need my loyal patronage. If
there is something out there near and dear to your heart and
you'd be generous enough to share it with me.... I would be
grateful for the advice.
I would love to hear from you. Please e.mail me about
anything and everything.
firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm only
half of the show; I'm a skilled professional and I make some
interesting points but I'm nothing without you! Here is our
number in the studio, our Q-Line - write it on your child's
forehead: 225.1077. Any and all feedback is encouraged. Let
us know what you do want to hear on the station or what the
heck-a-roni - you can even let us know what you do NOT want
to hear. Our moniker is 'radio put together by you' and we
mean it. It's not just some vacuous promise to get you to
I have never seen a group of harder working people than the
staff here at WMQT. They are a humble and earnest crew. They
care about this community and they love this radio station.
Management believed enough in me to get me up here and now
I'm ready to prove myself. I love radio. I love what I do. I
love having fun with listeners! Harry Bosch says 'Everybody
counts or nobody counts' ... you matter to me. You were
listening to Q-107 long before I arrived and I want to do
whatever I can to ensure that you stay. I have many ideas
for the morning show and would love to hear yours!
The first thing we need to do is find a local photographer
who can make me look like Catherine Zeta-Jones -- know
See ya on the radio!
Congrats are going out to Bre

of “Your Voice” contest with TV-6. Here's Bre with some
