Laura Chase

Afternoons, 3pm – 7pm

Hometown: I was born in Ohio, spent 23 adventurous years in Alaska, college in Oklahoma, then raised a daughter in Florida.  

Family: Married to Mr. Incredible, or “Q” as others call him.  He’s in finance, which is great because I never balance the checkbook.  Our very joyful daughter, Hosanna, is grown and the youth leader in our church.  We’ve been through the fostering/adoption process and will be adding to our family soon!  We own a small zoo comprised of 3 tiny dogs, 2 quirky cats, a lovable pet rat and a very talented fish.  

Career: Fell in love with radio on a 7th grade field trip where the DJ asked me to choose 2 songs to play on the air – I was instantly hooked.  Was ecstatic to find that I could major in Radio/TV at the Christian college I had applied to and was honored to not only work there but help keep it running as well.  

Activities: I’m up for anything fun and spontaneious: soft-serve twist ice cream and a movie, hitting a clearance rack, DIY renovations, puppy stores, friends’ houses, Bible studies, comedy nights, ChickFila, crashing on our enormous couch to watch the latest Hallmark movie or medical drama.  Side note: we  put on our comfy pjs as soon as we get home, no matter what time of day it is.  Oh, and my favorite activity of all, deep-dish pepperoni pineapple pizza!

HometownI moved around a LOT growing up. Very small towns in Illinois and Indiana. My graduating class was 27 people in Assumption, Illinois.

Family: I have been married for 28+ years! Our kids are grown up. Our son is an officer in the military, and our daughter just graduated from college.

Career: I wanted to be a baseball play-by-play guy, but I can’t see very well. I was a youth pastor for several years before starting part-time on a Christian radio station as a news man. 

Favorite activities: I exercise every day, but I don’t really enjoy it that much. Hmm… I like reading and sitting around just thinking about stuff. I write books and things, so I also enjoy avoiding the writing I need to do.

FamilyI am single and recently moved my retired mother and her sister in with me. I call them the “Golden Girls”!

CareerI started out working weekends at a gospel station in Pittsburgh. I left there and went to the gospel station across town to do the morning show. While doing the morning show I simultaneously started filling in as the afternoon talk host at a Christian Talk station in Pittsburgh all the while ski reporting (yes, you read that right) for Mountain News. I then worked for 2 different gospel networks, Rejoice! and Sheridan Gospel. I left Sheridan to join Brant’s show.
