‘We’re going to be much more involved on a local level and there’s a lot of excitement about the format change,” said Vincent “Mojo” Wilson, Program Director for the station.

Wilson hails from 105.1 The Bounce in Detroit, Michigan, and was the ShoalsInsider.com Readers Choice Award Shoals Best DJ.
