Christal Frost - WTCM Mornings
Christal Frost grew up in Northern Michigan, graduating from Benzie Central High School in 1998 (GO HUSKIES!) After graduation, she attended Northwestern Michigan College.
Christal has been with the WTCM family since 2012 and is a recent addition to the WTCM Morning Show. She is married with two children and is thrilled to still be able to call Northern Michigan her home. She is actively involved with the Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center, National Cherry Festival, Parallel 45 Professional Theater Company and is the co-founder of the CherryT Ball Drop New Year’s Eve events. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, making fun of her two cats “Beans” and “Beans’ Brother,” organizing other people’s closets (never her own) and going to second hand stores.
Mike Sinclair - Program Director / WTCM Mornings
Mike Sinclair has been with WTCM since the Spring of 2004. He fell in love with Northern Michigan! These days, Mike is waking you up! Tune in mornings for great country music, news, weather, sports, traffic and an occasional laugh. (yes, Mike thinks he's funny, so play along, ok?) The Morning Show features things like WTF (What the Florida) and your Country Roundup at 7:50. Mike is a Tiger & Lions fan and a tech and gadget geek. He thinks the Eagles are the greatest band ever. Mike is a fan of a lot of different genres of music and really likes country music, especially good harmonies. He has a son, Jason and Mike met his wife Kim in Traverse City and thinks he might keep her around for a little while. Mike runs a successful mobile DJ business specializing in Weddings. And, like the line in "Kill Bill", Mike says "I'm not bald, OK? I shaved my head". Although, if Mike were to let his hair grow out now, there'd be a little more salt than pepper these days. That's OK, Mike understands that growing old is mandatory, but growing UP is OPTIONAL!
Carey Carlson - WTCM Middays
Carey says her job is her therapy! For many years, you have saved her heaps in counseling fees! Carey has been in radio all of her adult life. She worked from town to town and up and down the dial. She is so happy to be in Northern Michigan, working with the premiere radio company in the north, Midwestern Broadcasting. As WTCM's Music Director, Carey talks with talented musicians, artists and writers and communicates each week with the labels, promoters and management reps about their artists. It is exciting to be able to highlight some of these new acts that are working so hard to catch your ear, that is why she created The Back Burner, which runs Sunday nights at 6pm, all we need is your brave ears to do the listening. Catch Carey middays (10a-2p). She loves your phone calls at The Corner Diner, birthdays, anniversaries, joy, sorrow, and strength...all kinds of everyday life. YOU (the listeners) are the favorite part of her job.
David Hayes - WTCM Afternoons
David was born and raised in Michigan! He’s new to Northern Michigan however, having grown up in the Detroit area. He would often visit the TC area whenever he had a chance and now, he’s excited to be living here! Some people downstate are not fond of snow, David is! He looks forward to getting back into cross country skiing, something he enjoyed many years ago. Fat tire biking looks pretty interesting to him as well. David loves watching movies, and has a new passion, binge watching TV shows, watching sports, and pretending he’s participating (LOL) is a passion as well. He’s a fan of the Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons, and oh, the Lions too (sigh). He got into radio because he loves all types of music and often has the studio speakers blaring during his afternoon show on WTCM! David also has a huge sweet tooth, just ask his dentist! You can often find him around the station with a donut, candy bar, cookies or other sweet snacks!
