Chris Rhoads on 95.7 The Hog

I started my radio career in Ocala back in 1989. From there I went to Orlando for 17 years and then up to Jacksonville for 5. I love cranking the tunes here on The Hog, weekdays 10-3pm.

I play guitar and love hanging at the beach with my beautiful wife and two children. I’m into concerts, football, NASCAR, hockey, fgolf and riding motorcycles any chance I get. I pull for #24 and #48 in NASCAR,  the Canadiens and Lightning in hockey, the Bucs, Jags and Noles in Football and Phil and Adam when golfs on TV.  See you at the next concert!

I love to personalize my endorsements with real life experiences, always keeping the listener and clients best interest in mind.  I’ve been endorsing national and local clients on an annual basis my whole career.
