Sean McHugh : Music Curator 7AM – 11AM
Originally from Annapolis, Maryland, Sean has lived in Wake Forest for the past five years. After attending many Grateful Dead and Phish shows and following the bands on tour, Sean knew he wanted to integrate music into his career. Realizing he was not wired to play instruments or be a musician, he discovered The Broadcasting Institute of Maryland and graduated from their Radio program. Sean has worked in radio for 18 years and has programmed and hosted shows on various stations in a variety of formats.
Sean’s musical taste covers a broad landscape including Roots, Rock, Blues, Folk, Bluegrass, World Music, and R&B. Outside of radio, Sean enjoys family time with his wife Melissa, kids Makenzie and Cayden, and boxer pup Penelope. Sean can also be seen out and about at concerts on any given night of the week!
Kristen : Music Curator 4PM – 6PM
Originally from Chicago, Kristen considers Raleigh her home since she moved to the City of Oaks at a young age. A graduate of Appalachian State University, she caught the radio bug working at her college station. Her love for Bluegrass, Americana, and Alternative Rock stemmed from living in Boone and attending concerts at her favorite venue — Legends.
Kristen’s eclectic musical taste ranges from Dave Matthews Band, The Lumineers, and Hozier all the way to Earth, Wind, & Fire. Her most memorable concert was when Boone native band Rainbow Kitten Surprise played in Asheville for the first time after they “made it big,” bringing a huge hometown feel with them. Aside from going to concerts, Kristen enjoys hiking, anything outdoors, sipping on craft beer, and painting. She also has a love for all animals — especially baby goats.
