Feature

My name is Alex Wellen and I'm from the big city of Smithton Illinois.  It’s near St. Louis.  It was always my dream to work in radio.  After realizing I hated Computer Science I decided to make my dream into my career.  First I started by announcing college basketball for Southwestern Illinois College.  Then I went on to SIUE and graduated with a Mass Communications degree in 2012.  I interned at the St. Louis radio station 105.7 the Point in the summer of 2012.  After relentlessly sending out resumes to every radio station under the sun I landed an interview here at WJBD.  After bothering Bruce, the general manager, for many weeks he decided to give me a shot.  I produce all the graphics for website and host the afternoon show from 1 to 7 PM.
