Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! I've been on the radio in South Jersey since 1994 and I still love it! I started at 95.1 WAYV and in 2008 I decided to come to Kool 98.3! I'm also the program director which means I get the most fun job of deciding what kind of music we play - but ultimately that's up to YOU, our listeners! I hope you like what you hear. You can always reach out to us to let us know your thoughts. Until then, I'll talk to you on the air!

Tina Owen

Soooo I’ve been around town and then some! 10 radio stations, many of which I was the only woman which has given me more big brothers than a girl could ask for! Alternative Rock/Classic Rock/County……..I’ve done it all, and I’ll never tell my favorite because I don’t have one! I LOVE IT ALL! BUT who I am AND where my heart is KOOL 98.3.
I really love meeting my listeners, so many of which have become friends over the years! Being on location is my thing! You never know where life is going to take you, and it has taken me all over the country but as they say, “THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME” and that home for me is KOOL 98.3!
I have never been one for show prep (Just ask David Allen Pratt!) but when I hit the mic and the ‘on air’ light goes on it just happens. RADIO DNA! I guess it helps that my brain is full of useless fun facts about music and life, all of which I laugh at.
I have ended every show with one word, so I will finish with that….PEACE!

Dave Michaels

Although I was born and raised in North Jersey, my radio career has brought me all around the country…and eventually here to South Jersey and Kool 98.3! I have worked in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York, Michigan, Delaware and even California before returning to my Jersey roots. What can I say? I missed the Jersey Shore! My role with Longport Media is company-wide as I am the cluster’s Production Director. You’ve probably heard me on a lot of commercials and promos on our various stations and not even known, as I’m more of a “behind-the-scenes” guy. Once in a while though I like to fill-in for Kool 98.3’s awesome DJ’s and you can always catch me Sunday afternoon starting at 2 PM. In my down time I enjoy hiking/camping, catching up with old friends, I love to sketch, and listen to the radio of course. I love all the great music on Kool 98.3, but my favorite is the Big 80’s weekend. I have it on all weekend long whenever I can!

Casey Kasem

Casey Kasem was one of the most recognizable voices in radio and television. Millions of fans around the world still find his name synonymous with musical countdowns. Today, Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 - The 70’s and Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 -The 80’s continue to be distributed and broadcast by Premiere Networks on more than 200 radio stations around theworld, as well as on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio.

In 2009, after 39 years as the “King of the Countdowns,” Kasem stepped down as host of American Top 20 and American Top 10, and in 2003, he retired from the helm of American Top 40 – the show he created in 1970 that became the gold standard of music programming. Kasem’s friendly, “crackling” voice style took him to the top of his profession. The man, who once dreamed of being a baseball player but ended up as a radio sports announcer instead, was the youngest member ever inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame. He has his own star on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame. In 1997, Billboard magazine honored him with its first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award. Kasem was honored with the first ever “Radio Icon” award at the Radio Music Awards in 2003. He also received the first “Lifetime Achievement Award”from Clear Channel Communications, parent company of Premiere, in 2004. Kasem also released his own series of music CDs entitled, Casey Kasem Presents
America’s Top Ten Through The Years, highlighting 20 top ten hits from each decade of the rock and roll era, the 1950s – 1990s.

Throughout his career, Kasem worked as a character actor in films and television. He has voiced countless commercials and Saturday morning cartoon-show characters, including the voice of Shaggy in the evergreen Scooby Doo television and film franchise.

All this is a long way from when young Kemal Amen Kasem, son of Lebanese Druze parents, was a sportscaster for his Detroit high school’s radio club. It was a short hop to radio acting. While majoring in speech and English at Wayne State University, he landed roles in national shows like “The Lone Ranger” and “Sergeant Preston of the Yukon.” During military service in Korea, he coordinated and acted in radio drama on the Armed Forces Network.

A civilian again in 1954, Kasem became a disc jockey, moving from Detroit to Cleveland, Buffalo, Oakland and eventually Los Angeles. The easy-going vocal style that was his trademark came about as the result of a station manager in Oakland telling him to change his format from
wild, improvised comedy characters – just minutes before he was to go on the air. With only moments to spare and still stuck for a new format idea, he spied a discarded magazine, Who’s Who in Pop Music, 1962, in a trash barrel at the studio. It was full of facts about recording artists –
exactly what he needed. That night he began telling stories about the true lives of popular musicians – teased with lead-ins a few minutes before each story was told. This “teaser/bio” format became a familiar part of American Top 40 and a standard in the radio industry.

Away from radio, Kasem co-hosted Jerry Lewis’ annual Labor Day Telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association beginning in 1981. He received the prestigious Founder’s Award for aiding Danny Thomas’ St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. A vegetarian, he did TV spots
and specials aimed at combating alcohol abuse, drunk driving and hunger, as well as a major campaign against smoking for the National Cancer Institute.

Kasem was a member of FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting). He spent much of his time after 1986 calling the entertainment industry’s attention to ethnic stereotyping. He also helped promote and support workshops like the Cousins Club that brings Arabs, Jews and others
together to discuss conflict resolutions. Kasem aided the Great Peace March in the U.S.A. (1986), and participated in the American-Soviet Walk to End an Arms Race Nobody Wants, held in the U.S.S.R. (1987). He returned to Moscow in 1992 to emcee a pop music concert on behalf of the Children of Chernobyl charity project.

His alma mater, Wayne State University, presented him with its “Distinguished Alumni” award. He received the 1989 “Martin Luther King Drum Major” award from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and, in 1990, the NAACP’s “Image” award and the “Ellis Island
Medal of Honor” award.

Kasem passed away on June 15, 2014. He is survived by his four children and his wife Jean, an actress who co-starred in the 1987 NBC-TV comedy series “The Tortellis.”
