6 a.m. to Noon: Derek Schlegel

An Ottumwa native, Derek has been known to survive in this rural wilderness with nothing but a pocket knife and free wireless internet. Currently pursuing his lifelong passion of having people listen to him, Derek enjoys the simpler things in life. Like rocket science, space exploration, and applied thermodynamics. He seriously didn't just look those up in Wikipedia. 
His duties include being on air for 97.7 TOM FM 6 a.m.-Noon Monday through Friday, and making sure the music is 'aight'.

8a.m. to 10 a.m.:  The TOM FM Morning Show with Derek & Tabitha

Tabitha Wymer joins Derek for the TOM FM Morning Show at 8 a.m.


12:00 p.m.  – 6 p.m. Jeremy Crossing aka Dr. J
Jeremy (known as Dr. J) loves his music, and it shows with the Back in the Day Cafe Monday through Friday 12:00-1:00pm and during the Going Home Traffic Jam 5:00-6:00pm. Jeremy also announces local sports.

6:00pm-Midnight  JVA
JVA is living his lifelong dream. No, wait, that was when he got a part-time job at The Sizzler, and made Employee of the Month after putting out a grease fire with his face. He hates flying, but knows he'll survive any plane crash as long as he keeps his tray table up, and his seatback in the full upright position. JVA will never rest until he finds the man with a Flock-of-Seagulls haircut who stole his lucky snorkel, but until then, all he really needs you to know is that he really, really hates sauerkraut.  You can hear JVA from 6p.m. to Midnight.
