Hey guys, I'm Bill Spadea, host of our morning drive show on New Jersey 101.5. I'm also the host of Chasing News which airs weeknights on Fox Television in New York and Philly. I've done a little bit of everything over my 20+ year career serving as a political strategist, analyst, candidate for office and business executive. Before getting into media I served as an executive in the real estate industry for 18 years coaching, recruiting and selling
I'm co-host of the Dennis & Judi Show, weekdays 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. I grew up as a poor Guatemalan child and rose through the ranks of industry to become one of the world's leading experts in animal husbandry. After losing 400 pounds through gastric bypass and developing a serious infection while on holiday in the Philippines, I enjoy giving advice to new adoptive parents of unwanted tropical fish.
I'm Judi Franco, a fictional character. I adore co-hosting the midday show with Dennis Malloy, who after 20 years is like a husband to me; the annoying husband who doesn't sleep with me, give me money or pay enough attention to me. I love New Jersey so much that it's like a sister to me; the bitchy sister who steals my boyfriends, tells my mom my secrets and owes me money she never intends to pay.
I love being part of New Jersey 101.5. It's a station I was a fan of even before working here, plus New Jersey is my home state. Born and raised in Union County, that whole area seen in the old "Sopranos" opening credits was pretty much my back yard. I've also lived in Cape May, Mercer, Middlesex, and Somerset counties. Now I reside in Hunterdon County with my wife and four kids. I love Bruce Springsteen, Jersey pizza, summers at Seaside and the greatest radio audience in the world!
I've been working with Jeff Deminski, or Heff-ay, since our first run at New Jersey 101.5 from 1994 to 1999. After 12 years in Michigan, we came back in 2011. I have three children (two of whom were born in the Garden State), with one at Montclair State and two in high school in Ocean County. I live in Jackson, where I enjoy grilling burgers 12 months a year on my Big Green Egg.
Jersey is all about attitude and that's what you get with me. Jersey attitude, born in Union City and bred through Marlboro, Old Bridge, Eatontown, East Windsor, Roosevelt, Sea Isle City, etc. When I'm not talking Jersey on New Jersey 101.5, I'm making fun of it in theaters, comedy clubs and casinos across the state. But I do it with love because that's what we're about in New Jersey — love and attitude.
On weekends the music comes out to play and so do I. I have the best job in the world by playing Jersey’s Favorite Hits and I’ve been doing it for over 20 years here on New Jersey 101.5. You can catch me on Friday nights from 7 p.m. to midnight as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We have jokes, traffic, weather and great music. One of the great things I love to do is remote broadcasts and appearances. We go all over New Jersey for more fun and I get to meet the people that enjoy the show and our fine station
Born and raised in New Jersey, I am proud to play "Jersey's Favorite Hits" on Saturday afternoon from 3 to 7 p.m., and Sunday night from 7 p.m. to midnight. Along with writing for NJ1015.com, I do a lot of "behind the scenes" work at the station. In my spare time, I listen to music (I have a large CD and vinyl record library). I walk, and I work out at the gym. I enjoy books with cool characters and clever plotlines (Stephen King, for example). And, I'm turning my dirtbike into an on-road motorcycle, so look out NJ Traffic North and South, here I come!
I’ve been a broadcaster and creator of content since I was 14, but there has never been a more exciting time for our industry. In digital and social media spaces we are able to break through the boundaries of over-the-air broadcast signals, and extend into markets that were previously unreachable. For Townsquare Media New Jersey, I lead a team of outstanding journalists and producers generating news and entertainment content for our daily on-air and on-line radio broadcasts, as well as our websites and social media platforms
New Jersey is my home. I was born and raised here. I went college at Montclair State and started my career ironically on the college radio station which, at the time, was on 101.5 FM! For 25 years I have had the best job on New Jersey 101.5 as the New Jersey Traffic North reporter on the morning show — first with Jim Gearhart and now with Bill Spadea as well as being a weekend music host playing Jersey’s Favorite Hits. I am humbled to know how much our audience depends upon the information in the traffic reports and all things Jersey
I’ve been on the radio in New Jersey since I was 18 years old, and since 1999 at New Jersey 101.5. On weekends, when the music comes out to play, I’m happy to be here! During the week, I’m an engineer with Townsquare Media keeping everything running in Atlantic City and around the state on the radio and online. I’ve been intrigued with electronic things since I was 4 years old when I went behind the TV and adjusted everything and made Captain Kangaroo very short and squat
Hello on you! You may know me as Don Tandler The Record Handler, because I can tell you what the #1 song was on the day you were born! I'm practically a lifer at New Jersey 101.5, here 21 of the last 26 years! I did two tours of duty as Jim Gearhart's board-op, and was the host of the old "Saturday Night Jersey Oldies Show" and "Saturday Night Jersey 70s Show." Currently, I'm Dracula, hosting the weekend overnight shows, midnight to 6 a.m. I also help produce Steve Trevelise's weeknight talk show
