Happy Hour with Nick Jakusz

Each weekday at 4:00 is Happy Hour, hosted by Nick Jakusz!

The news is constantly filled with stories that bring you down, but each day from 4:00 to 5:00 the only stories you will hear are ones that will uplift you and make you smile! You’ll hear good-news stories from around the country, but the BEST stories are the local ones!

You know what else makes us smile?! A clean car!


If you know someone who went above and beyond to help neighbor, or if you have a family member or friend doing something awesome, we want to know! Fill out this form so we can share it with everyone else and spread positivity as far as our signal reaches! If you are feeling ambitious, record yourself telling the story, and we may play it on the air!
