Hi, I'm Val! I host the midday show on WRRV and I have been doing radio almost as long as I've been talking! Would you believe I began working at WRRV back in 2005, and after a little hiatus in Western MA, have been been back home at WRRV doing the midday show since 2018!? When it comes to music, Pearl Jam, Shinedown, Coldplay - those will always top my favorites list, and these days it has been all about AJR thanks to my 8 year old daughter - the kid has a great ear for music, but when you think about who her mom is, are you surprised?! We are constantly adding dates to our concert calendar, ALWAYS down for a show and will travel near and far to catch our favorite bands live! Make plans to hang out with me Monday-Saturday 10am-3pm, and don't forget to get your nostalgia on from 12-1pm for the Throwback at 12!
