This time, we talk to the morning hosts who are about "Real Life, Real Cleveland", as Bill & Morgan of the Q104 Morning Show join us.

Bill Ryan is a Northeast Ohio native and Kent State grad who is now on his second stint with Q104. He was originally part of the team from the mid-’90s to the turn of the century. In between, among other things, he produced the national JohnJay and Rich show, which we featured in season one.

Morgan Wright is also an Ohio native, growing up in Perry and graduating from Marshall University. She considers herself a pop culture expert and is active on social media…where her TikTok videos have scored almost 8 million likes!

Interestingly, this is a case where Bill and Morgan did not know each other before forming this show. Wait 'til you hear how they made it work...and work well!
