The Bill Bevins Wake Up Show with Shelly Perkins, WTVR-FM 98.1 (Lite 98)

Readers' Pick

Richmond seems to enjoy being eased awake, pleasantly. Maybe the caffeine for your ears comes from Lite 98’s Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins. Bevins has been host since 1995; the two will mark 10 years as an on-air team in September. Chemistry = top ratings. “We’re very good friends, there’s nothing forced about it,” Bevins says. Plus, they’re locals. “He went to Meadowbrook, I went to Lee-Davis,” Perkins says. “So there’s this sense of, ‘This really is our town.’”
