Marty McFly got his start in radio in 1985 and says “one day not long after high school I found myself in a radio station, and I just knew this was it.” Almost 30 years later, and he’s still at it! The four-times nominated “CMA Air Personality of the Year” and three-time “ACM Air Personality of the Year” nominee helped the stations he worked at win a combined twelve CMA/ACM “Station of the Year” awards! He has also been nominated for Billboard Magazine’s “Air Personality of the Year” in 1996, Bobby Poe Magazine’s “Large Market Air Personality of the Year” in 1993, and Country Aircheck Magazine’s Large Market Air Personality of the Year in 2012.
Not only is Lisa Manning a radio dynamo, she’s an energetic P.T.O. mom that manages a showbiz career and a family life at home. The multi-talented Lisa launched her nearly three-decade radio-career in college, after following her father’s footsteps as a radio DJ and her mother’s as an actress. Manning’s on-air personality was shaped by her experience in several markets, including Charlotte, Cleveland, Norfolk, and Washington, D.C.
Scott Gaines lives and breathes country, and has never worked any job BUT radio, so he’s perfect for afternoons on NASH Icon. After earning a B.A. in Communications from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Scott held on-air and programming positions in major markets like Dallas and Detroit, as well as did voiceover and production jobs across the country.  Recently, he’s had a long and successful run here at Westwood One, with our other country formats. Combine all that living with his innate understanding of the soul of country, and you’ve got a broadly skilled personality, experienced in attracting and retaining audiences to NASH Icon, and your station.
Darlas Rai is a country girl at heart, born and raised in Oregon. Now she’s a busy mom with two sets of twins and a passion for radio. She decided when she was only 8-years-old that she wanted to play music and talk on the radio, and she’s been living her dream since 1992. After living in Las Vegas for seven years, Darlas is now raising her kids in Nashville, where she moved in June 2006. Her passion for country music and people are obvious, she LOVES what she does and it shows through her broadcasts.
Kim Stewart has a strong Country background. She most recently worked as a midday jock on KSCS/Dallas.
