Wake Up with Ryan & Michele


Wake up with Ryan & Michele weekday mornings from 6:00 to 10:00am on WJER! They'll get you caught up on the latest happenings around Tuscarawas County, share entertaining stories and commentary, and provide the opportunity for you to rock out during '90s at 9:00.  

Ryan Pastircak has been with WJER since he began as an intern at 16 years old. In addition to co-hosting the morning show, Ryan also doubles as a reporter for the WJER News department. Michele Spring recently joined the WJER family but has spent several years working in media around northeast Ohio. We're glad to have her cheerful and upbeat personality grace the radio airwaves of WJER.

Keep your radio tuned to 100.9 FM or AM 1450 and start each weekday with some Ryan & Michele!







WJER Radio's "MASKerade" Quarantine Prom a Big Success


On May 9th, WJER Radio held a Quarantine Prom for the community. Our prom theme was "MASKerade," and we gave out swag bags to the first 100 people to drive through our parking lot. The bags included handmade cloth face masks,
prom T-shirts courtesy of Wendy’s and Lightning Signs & Decals, roses from Baker Florist, Wendy’s Frosty key tags, Wendy’s coupons courtesy of the Parkway Superstore, coupons for free Crazy Bread from Little Caesars, cookies from Subway, sweet treats and $5 coupons from The Grove Gift Shoppe, swag from Signs To Go, and coupons good for $5 off a $10 purchase at One TwentySeven in Dover.

Two lucky visitors were crowed Prom King and Queen:
Andy Mossor from Dover is a Senior at Buckeye Career Center, and Raegan Fitzgerald from New Philadelphia is a junior at Tuscarawas Central Catholic. Our royalty each won a $50 Bellstores gift card and a $50 gift certificate to the Texas Roadhouse. Congrats!

During Prom, we also gave away lots of prizes on the radio and the WJER Facebook page, too!
One lucky Facebook commenter won a Vera Bradley backpack and ID holder from The Grove Gift Shoppe. Multiple listeners won free pizza from Domino's, and two winners received a $50 gift card to One TwentySeven in Dover

Our morning show co-hosts Ryan and Michele were the DJs for the evening, and the WJER staff even led a community-wide “Electric Slide” at the stroke of 7:00pm! It was definitely an evening to remember, and we’d like to thank our sponsors and everyone who participated in our Quarantine Prom either by driving through our parking lots or simply by dancing to the radio at home.
