Laura Chase

Afternoons with Laura Chase, 3pm-7pmSundays, 1pm-6pm

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

Laura is married to Mr. Incredible, or “Q” as others call him. He’s in finance, which is great because Laura never balances the checkbook. Their very joyful daughter, Hosanna, is grown and the youth leader in their church. They’ve been through the fostering/adoption process and will be adding to their family! Laura also owns a small zoo comprised of 3 tiny dogs, 2 quirky cats, a lovable pet rat, and a very talented fish.

Laura is up for anything fun and spontaneous: 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 her enormous couch to watch the latest Hallmark movie or medical drama. Side note: Laura's family puts on their comfy pjs as soon as we they home, no matter what time of day it is. Oh, and her favorite activity of all: eating deep-dish pepperoni pineapple pizza!

Hometown: Born in Ohio, she spent 23 adventurous years in Alaska, college in Oklahoma, then raised her daughter in Florida.

Brant Hansen

Evenings with Brant & Sherri, 7pm-MidnightNights, 7pm-Midnight

Brant is a husband and dad, and he’s won multiple awards for his radio hosting skills. He has been married for 28+ years! Brant's kids are grown up; his son is an officer in the military and his daughter just graduated from college.

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

He now co-hosts his show with Sherri. Brant says, “Sherri’s not just a radio talent, but a person with a love for Jesus, an inordinate amount of wisdom, and – let’s be honest, here – the most infectious laugh we’ve all ever heard.”

Brant’s show is home to “misfits.” He says all are welcome at the table and there is no one perfect but Jesus.

Brant likes reading and sitting around just thinking about stuff. Brant writes books and things, so he also enjoys avoiding the writing he needs to do.

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

Sherri Lynn

Evenings with Brant & Sherri, 7pm-MidnightNights, 7pm-Midnight

Sherri considers herself a simple girl who loves Jesus and gets to write and talk for a living. "It’s pretty cool and more than I could have ever hoped for. God has been incredibly gracious to me."

Sherri loves writing and producing. She loves producing things like stage plays, musicals, dramas, comedies, etc. When she's not doing that, she is spending as much time with family and friends as is humanly possible. Sherri recently moved her retired mother and her sister in with her. She calls them the “Golden Girls!”

Sherri originally started out working weekends at a gospel station in Pittsburgh. She left there and went to the gospel station across town to do the morning show. While doing the morning show, Sherri 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. She then worked for 2 different gospel networks, Rejoice! and Sheridan Gospel. Sherri now produces The Brant Hansen Show.

Deborah came to Liberty University as a student in the Fall of 99’ and then spent over 15 years working in children’s ministry for various churches in Virginia and Texas. God has used all the different roles she has worked in, from volunteer coordinator and writing curriculum to children’s director, to give her a heart and passion for pouring into others. Each step has prepared me for my new role with The Journey.

In 2002, Deborah married her husband Kevin. They have four amazing children, Kaylah, Madison, Wesley, and Annabelle, ages 10 to 21.
