J. Fotsch: I’ve worked in radio at Power 96.5 now for 19 years!.  I’ve been doing the morning show on Power 96.5 for 11 years.  I’m married to my beautiful wife Emily.  She moved here a year ago and works at Ozarks Elder Law here in Springfield. We have a dog “Cooperstown” (aka Cooper) and a cat named “George” (she says the cat was named after George Brett and I say he was named after George Kissell). Emily is a Royals fan and I’m a Cardinals fan… which makes for interesting baseball arguments… “West vs. East” of Missouri. I’m from St. Louis but have lived in Springfield since 1998 and graduated (barely) from Missouri State in 2001.  I’m also the “the on-field guy” (or as some people like to call me “the idiot with the microphone”) at the Springfield Cardinal games at Hammons Field for the last 11 seasons.

Chelsea: Chelsea grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and after attending Missouri State University, she loved the Ozarks so much she decided to make it her home! She’s married to the wonderful Dillon Hasten, and is a dog mom to her adorable Corgi Penny Lane. Growing up, Chelsea was heavily involved in theatre and starred in many musical theatre productions, including some productions at the Springfield Little Theatre. She’s a HUGE fan of music, specifically country. Chelsea loves going to concerts, watching her husband play in his band around town, Friday Night Art Walks, and enjoying lots of great food and roller coasters at Silver Dollar City!
