Joe is the Program Director for the Sound of Life Radio Network. He grew up in North Carolina, with Andy Griffith, sweet tea, and bar-b-que. Most people only gave him 6 months in Yankee territory, but God had other plans. Joe is a testament of God’s incredible grace; a person who moved here out of purely selfish motives who is being used for His glory on a daily basis. God gave him a love for radio, something that He uses for His glory to impact lives every day. Joe is married to Debbie and they have three grown children.
Doug is a Christ-follower, a proud husband, a dad, and Diet Pepsi and Apple products fanatic. He’s been married to his wife Julie since 1988, and they have 4 kids – one of whom has a Master’s Degree, confirming that she always was smarter than her dad! 😉 Doug is originally from Michigan. He likes saying things on the radio that build people up and remind people of God’s grace, which really is AMAZING!

Brant Hansen is a toast-obsessed nerd who, when in high school, was no less than PRESIDENT of the Illinois Student Librarians Association. He was also All-Conference in “Scholastic Bowl”, and lettered in basketball and football (both for keeping statistics) and was President of his own Stamp Collection Club, which consisted of himself. He’s also an “Aspie” – diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as an adult. And he’s happy about it. Brant works full-time for CURE International, a network of hospitals serving the poor around the world. He’s also a radio host. In his spare time, he walks his three-legged dog, Nigel, while looking inappropriately intense. He can’t help it. Brant is also a husband and dad, and he’s won multiple awards for his radio skills and is typing all of this himself, and putting it in third-person in hopes that it seems more impressive that way.
