Nick Jakusz
Nick grew up in Lemont and learned to love the classics from a young age. No matter where they were going, it was oldies with mom and classic rock with dad. While the other kids were listening to the latest pop, Nick's first CD was Aerosmith's Greatest Hits! The radio bug bit while in college at Saint Xavier University after reading an ad looking for a Sports Director at the college radio station WXAV. Since then, Nick has worked in Chadron, NE; Jacksonville, IL; Joliet and Aurora. Now, Nick is trying to balance working at The River, satisfying his love of craft beer and the areas best local eateries, and spending time with his wife and new son Max at their home in Plainfield. Nick is also the Production Director for The River."You can catch him on the air weekdays 10am-3pm and doing play-by-play for high school sports on our sister station 1340 WJOL.
