Hunter & Michaels’ Interviews
Monday – Friday
5 AM – 10 AM
When Hunter was in grade school, the nuns told the students to come to school dressed as what they wanted to be when they grew up. While fellow students wore suits and lab coats, Hunter wore sunglasses and a radio station t-shirt. The school never had career day again.
Born and raised in Ohio, she escaped and went to college in Virginia Beach because the brochure showed students on the beach. After 4 years of radio there, she moved to Florida and has been with WIND-FM since 1999.
She is a breast cancer survivor (2012) and hopes a cure will be found in her lifetime. She helps raise funds for research and to help with the needs of others battling the disease. Hunter resides with her husband Steve and their dog Spike.
