Wake Up Classy 97 with Josh & Chelsea

Monday – Friday 6a-10a

Josh Tielor:

Born & raised in Idaho Falls, I grew up spending a lot of time in the Idaho wilderness. I love fly fishing & fly tying. I’m a Scoutmaster for a local troop and therefore get my fair share of camping, hiking, backpacking, and outdoor adventure! I am a husband and a father. My wife Chantel and I have been best friends since we met 2003 and our two children, Beck and Emery, are extremely skilled at keeping us on our toes, and we have a blue heeler-pointer mix named Stella. I fell in love with radio at about 12 years old and decided at that point that I was going to be the voice on the radio. I would practice recording myself on cassette tapes pretending to be a radio DJ and whenever the opportunities to intern or meet radio personalities came up, I was all over it. After graduating high school, I moved to Phoenix, AZ for a couple of years and graduated from the Academy of Radio & TV Broadcasting. I have been on the radio in East Idaho since September 2001 and there’s no end in sight. Thanks for listening and making Wake Up Classy 97 a part of your daily routine!

Chelsea Ray:

I was born in Indiana, raised in California, and finally found home in Idaho! I love to read anything and everything I can get my hands on. I am crafty! I love to knit, crochet, quilt, write, illustrate, and collaborate as often as I can. I am also an armature photographer and make up artist. I LIVE for excuses to do creative costume shoots, wedding events, and portraits. I currently live with one furry feline named Ava. Though I’m not much for nature activities, I certainly understand and appreciate the beauty to behold in the great wilderness that surrounds us! You can usually catch me in the movie theater getting caught up on the latest releases as cinema is yet another art form I can’t get enough of. I love my career in radio and feel so blessed to have discovered this creative arena when I did. Thanks for listening to Wake Up Classy 97 with myself and Josh as we get your morning started with the best foot forward.
