Get to know your morning show, Sonoma County. They wake up bright and early and bring you great country music, North Bay happenings and huge prizes! Here’s a little more about Amber & Tanner…
Amber was born and raised in the state of Georgia. Her first job in radio was in high school where she worked as a board operator at her local radio station. She then attended the University of Georgia where she studied Communications, as well as Music Business and Technology. She continued to work in radio throughout college learning audio production, voice-over work and eventually became an on-air personality. She was on mornings on a Top 40 station and hosted a podcast called The Hot Mess Express. She also hosted a show called Classic Country Saturday Night, which excited her love for country music.
When she’s not on air, she loves spending time with her dog and her boyfriend of many years. Her favorite things to do are going on hikes, seeing live music and drinking good beer. She loves all music, ranging from Led Zeppelin to Lizzo. Country artists she loves are Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves, Luke Combs and Eric Church. She also loves the Marcus King Band, Tyler Childers and Sturgill Simpson (what Dano likes to call “Sea Shanty Music”). What she loves about Sonoma County is the great weather, amazing views, but most of all the wonderful people.
Tanner is a Seattle native. So, when he moved to Sonoma County in 2019, his first mission was to throw away all of his rain jackets. Growing up, Tanner first showed his love for entertaining by getting involved in his high school theater, as well as playing for his high school football team. Tanner began his radio journey his freshman year at Central Washington University.
Tanner lives Santa Rosa with his two cats, Memphis and Ringo, and his girlfriend Kami. When Tanner is off the air, you can find him performing stand-up comedy, watching Netflix, or reading a good book. Tanner is also a HUGE football fan, but it will take him a beer or two to admit who his favorite NFL team is.
Tanner was inducted into the 2018 class of “Reelworld’s Rising Stars”. In 2019, Tanner was featured in Radio Ink Magazine’s “Radio’s 30 and Under Superstars”.
Tanner’s favorite country artists are Garth Brooks, Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves, & Chris Stapleton.
