Second Place: “Bill and Shelly in the Morning,” Easy 100.9
Third Place: The Jimmy Barrett Show, Newsradio 1140 WRVA / 98.5 FM
Who you wake up with is a big deal. Looks like 103.7 Play’s Melissa Chase and Jack Lauterback still do it for you. The duo snags votes for a third consecutive year, proving that solid tunes, juicy celeb gossip and good-natured shenanigans are the way to your heart before 9 a.m. Can Melissa continue tolerating Jack to win this thing again next year? Stay tuned. Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins are new to the recently launched Easy 100.9, but they’re no strangers to accolades, having developed a loyal and long following on Lite 98. Their show started in July 2014 much to the delight of listeners who were bummed when they bid farewell after 13 years. And speaking of 13 years, that’s how long Jimmy Barrett’s been bringing you the morning news on Newsradio 1140 WRVA, with the traffic, weather, sports and interviews that keep a morning buzzing.
