I joined, then WOOO, in 1998. Working through the various identities of the station over the years, WKWH, and now, WSVX, 2014 is my 22nd year in the wonderful world of radio.
Having grown up in Illinois, I cannot stand IU or Purdue. I consider the rise of Butler basketball in my time here to be a blessing.

Professor knows what you need to know. Todd is the Sales Manager for 3

always had a love for music, as well as the Cleveland Indians and

Operations Manager / Rochester Morning Radio Host
I am a 2006 graduate of Tippecanoe Valley High School. I always wanted to get into radio as a kid, which I think is what led to me pretending I was a radio show host. I would record songs onto a tape and then play them back, pausing in between songs to jock. When I landed the job as a board operator at WROI, my childhood passion flashed before my eyes as a career. My dream and passion to be a radio host manifested itself, as I finally got my foot in the door. In 2017 I got offered a full-time position as the afternoon host and Program Director for WROI.
In August of 2019, when the radio station switched hands, I temporarily filled in for the morning DJ and was promoted to Operations Manager. When it was finally time for me to go back to hosting the afternoons, we wanted to set afternoons apart from what I did in the mornings by creating a “radio persona.” Based on my childhood nickname “Moose,” given to me by my dad, “Moose in the Afternoon” was born.
Aside from being behind the mic, I also have a strong love for All Elite Wrestling and my most important job that keeps me going, being a father of three.
Bettina "Tina" Kay Sommers Sullivan
Account Executive for WROI Giant FM
My name is Bettina Kay Sommers Sullivan, most of you know me by Tina. I grew up on a small farm in Rochester Indiana, where I got a lot of life experiences from my very hard-working Father. I graduated from Rochester High School, and have a few college certificates from Ivy Tech, Warsaw. I have held a few different long-term jobs, which I took away a good work ethic and experience from each one. I am now married to my amazing husband Robert Sullivan, and we live a comfortable life here in Rochester, where we love to travel and spend time with family and friends. I have spent the last 7 years working as an Account Executive for WROI and now WROI Giant fm. I have met a lot of great people and obtained a generous amount of relationships with business owners over the years I have spent with the radio. My plan is to work for WROI until I retire to continue my travels to places unknown.
