"Get Up and Go Show" - Being a local native, Steve Hayes
returned to the Portsmouth area in 1999 to help build the
area's most listened to morning show. With an arsenal of humor,
upbeat music, local news, and sports, "The Get Up and Go Show"

the day. According to Steve's philosophy, "I run my show as
if I were a listener too. If I ever get bored with it, I'm
sure the listeners would also. I simply try to pretend that
I'm in the car, or sitting around the breakfast table with
everybody else. By the way, would someone please pass the
salt?" "The Get Up and Go Show" can be heard 5 am until 10
am Monday through Friday and from 6 am until 10 am on Saturday

who reflects the goings on of both the local and regional
sporting interests live starting at 6:30 am on The All New
News - When it comes to knowing the landscape of the area's

sense of authority. From city council to the fastest breaking
overnight information, the Hometown Radio news team is plugged
into all the sources of authority and delivers what local
radio news is all about.

years of age cares about, you'll hear it on MIX.99.3. Vintage

the station a fresh sound while never forgetting the great
classics from the past.
