Sue Wilson

Sue is both the Program Director at WQMX as well as the morning show co-host on the ACM nominated and CRB award winning: "Wynn and Wilson in the Morning". 

A lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio, Sue considers herself fortunate to have been able to spend her entire 30-plus year career in the area she was born and raised. Sue has experience as an air personality, music director, research director, program director and programming consultant.

Before her arrival at WQMX in December of 2006, Sue worked at great radio stations like WCPZ, Sandusky, WKDD in Akron and Cleveland's 106.5 (then WLTF) before her 12 year tenure at 102.1 WDOK in Cleveland,  where she designed the formatics and changed that station from "elevator music" to "Soft Rock" in the late 80's. She led WDOK to the top of the ratings where it remained for over a decade before joining the radio consulting firm McVay Media as a programming consultant. In 2001, she was hired to launch a brand new station, 95.5 The Fish in Cleveland, and then continued to help launch the popular Christian music format at various other stations around the country.

Sue also does professional voice-over work and radio station imaging through her freelance voice business Sue Wilson Creative. You can hear her voice on radio stations in several markets around the country and on many local, regional and national commercials.

Although many of the stations Sue has worked for have not been country, she is no stranger to country music. Long-time country radio listeners may remember Sue's late husband, Phil Cordle, who worked at the legendary Akron country station WSLR 1350/AM for many years. Sue has always been a fan of country music, and is thrilled to now be programming a music style she loves. Sue has a passion for animals, and love her 2 rescue dogs "Charlie" ( a blond shepard) and "Scooby" ( a collie/lab mix).

She serves on the board for Pay It Forward For Pets and The Red Cross of Summit and Portage Counties, and devotes countless hours of emceeing and volunteering for various non-profits.

Lynn was born in Akron, Ohio and spent her school years here all the way through the University of Akron. Her radio career began at country station K105 in Salem in the news department..

In 2003 she decided to stay home full time with her son Andrew. When he was in school, she had the opportunity to work at noncommercial WAPS here in Akron, where she worked until joining WQMX. Even though Lynn had never worked in country radio before, she was excited to take on the challenge and jump back into radio full time. "Country listeners are the friendliest, most down to earth people I have ever met, and they have welcomed me with open arms" says Lynn. "I truly feel at home here and it's wonderful to do what I do in my hometown!" Lynn makes her home on the west side of Akron around the corner from the radio station, with her husband and son Aside from making Andrew, her priority and keeping up with her step-daughter Olivia.

Ken Steel

Ken Steel has been a resident of Northeast Ohio for over 40 years. Ken grew up in Streetsboro, Ohio and graduated from Streetsboro High School in 1989. (See George McFly bio yes Ken and George both went to the same school and graduated the same year.) Streetsboro High School had its own student run radio station, WSTB-FM, where Ken got hooked on radio broadcasting. After high school, Ken had a short stint at the University of Akron radio station 88.1 WZIP, and an even shorter stint at 106.9 in Canton. In 1991, when he was just 19 years old, Ken came to WQMX (which wasn't even a country station at the time) to work part-time. WQMX switched from an Adult Contemporary format (a.k.a. Lite Rock) to Country music in April 1993 and it wasn't long before Ken had a full-time slot every weeknight from 7-Midnight. Over the past 20 years, Ken has climbed his way to country radio super-stardom (at least thats what his mom says) and now you can hear Ken every weekday afternoon from 3pm until 7pm. Ken is also the stations Assistant Program Director which, in short, means that he plays a role in determining which songs are played on the air. Ken says, If you ever hear a song that you don't like, I had nothing to do with that, but whenever you hear your favorite song, "thats all me, baby and you're welcome!"  Ken went back to school and received his bachelors degree in Marketing Management and eMarketing/Advertising from the University of Akron in 2006. He claims he went back to college just in case he has to get a real job when (and if) he grows up. Ken is married to his lovely wife Kelli, and has two children: his son Derek and daughter, Hunter. And lets not forget about the cat and dog, Gracie and Scout. Contact Ken at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Sarah Kay

Something you may notice about Sarah Kay when you meet her is that she wears pink everyday!

She has been doing to since she was 13, so why stop now?! Everything is pink- her glasses, her cell phone and even her Christmas tree.

Sarah Kay was born and raised in Hartville, Ohio.

She graduated from Kent State University in 2004 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She knew she wanted to go into radio at an early age because all she ever does is talk! Sarah loves meeting new people and socializing- she has never met a stranger.

When Sarah is not at work she loves to cheer on the Ohio State Buckeyes with her husband Warren and friends.

To show her tried and true OSU spirit; Sarah has been known to run around town dressed as a buckeye. She loves sharing random and useless information with anyone who will listen- if it random and useless, Sarah knows about it. For example: Did you know a Ritz Cracker has 7 holes? Did you know that if you chew gum while peeling onions your eyes won't burn?
