Tim Wayne • Sundays 6 to 10am
I was born right here in Columbus, Indiana. Moved to Seymour when I was 9 and graduated from Seymour High School. I am an Indiana State University graduate. Started in Radio, TV and Film and ended with a B.S. in Criminology/Pre-Law. After college served in the U.S. Army as a Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent. Just think of NCIS…just with the Army. I guess you could say that life has come around full circle for me since I lost a bet and became a weekend on-air personality for 106.1 The River. Seriously, being here has been a breath of fresh air and I do enjoy it.
- Mt favorite band is Chicago. Boston is a close second. I have seen Chicago twice. Once with Peter Cetera and once with his replacement Jason Scheff. The concert with Cetera was the best. Something about incorporating horns into the act sends it over the top for me.
- My three favorite movies are Tombstone, The Shawshank Redemption and Rocky 1 or 2. I do like a lot of the newer movies, but not as much as these classics.
- Pets? Nah. I did have a great dog named Baron. He and I were inseparable for 17 years. Lost him about a year and a half ago. Still think about him every day.
- My favorite food is Southern fried chicken. Pizza a close second.
- I dabble in the voice-over business for fun. I also like golf, astronomy, metal detecting and gem hunting.
- I am a local business owner. I have two children, Zachary and Sydney and one Grandson Roscoe.
