Lia & Jonny in the Morning – 6a-10a Monday-Friday








Shawna 10a-2p Monday-Friday

Hi everyone! I’m originally from Tennessee but I have lived in Southern Illinois since November 1988. My first day on CIL-FM was November 13, 1988 and it wasn’t unlucky at all. I attended John A. Logan College and graduated from Southern Illinois University with a degree in Psychology. I’ve always considered myself a radio person and I’m always happy when I get to be on the air. In addition to working on CIL-FM, I also fill in on our sister stations: Magic 95.1 and New Country Z100. When I’m not on the radio, I’m spending time with my husband and 2 kitties, reading a good book, working out, catching up with friends, or jumping out of airplanes!


Jake 2p-6p Monday-Friday

Born and raised in Southern Illinois, my first radio job was WRAJ in Anna Illinois at 15 (i lied about my age!) playing commercials for cardinals baseball games, after i graduated high school i was hired at WTAO in Murphysboro. Graduated from Broadcast Center in St. Louis in 1991. Eventually wound up in Little Rock Ar. at K-97. Now back to Southern Illinois to work with a great group here at River Radio and CIL-FM! I have 1 son Brayden who is the love of my life!




Nina Blanco – 6p-12a – Monday-Friday

Hey everyone! I am originally from the northwest suburb Crystal Lake, IL and made the move to Carbondale to go to school at SIUC. One day you will see me hosting E! News and I will be the next Ryan Seacrest!

I am in charge of our interning program for the CIL Summer Street Team. If you are interested in interning with us feel free to e-mail me at Nina@riverradio.net

I am a HUGE celebrity gossiper and love to be “in the know”.

I love meeting and talking to new people as much as I can. If you see me out and about or with the Summer Street Team, stop by and give me a chat!
