Meet Adam Owens!
Adam is a DJ at Bold Gold Media and he's in charge of production. You can wake up with Adam on 95.3 DNH weekday mornings from 6am to 9am and get through the workday afternoons on Classic Hits 105.3. When he's not on air, Adam is in the recording studio producing all the local commercials you hear in between songs. He started with Bold Gold a little over a year and a half ago in October of 2016. According to Adam, the best part of his job at Bold Gold is the zany stuff he gets to do on his shows, meeting local business owners and helping promote their life's work. Growing up, both of Adam's parents were vegetarian so if he wanted to eat meat he had to cook it himself. He learned to cook by age 8 and has developed some pretty decent kitchen skills. Adam has a well-rounded taste in music, being a huge fan of Major Lazer and Mark Ronson, as well as, Queen, Gordon Lightfoot, Hall & Oates, and Steely Dan. He thanks his dad for introducing him to great music early in life. Adam is part of a team that throws Subaru Enthusiast Festivals around the country every summer, welcoming 23,000 guests to race track events, and more. He's the MC for the day and he handles the sound system. Check it out here: www.subieevents.com.
Meet Sam Miller!
Sam is Morning News Anchor, as well as, a DJ on 95.3 DNH here with Bold Gold Media. He has been with Bold Gold for just about 3 years, starting his career as an intern in 2014. When asked about his favorite part of working at Bold Gold he said the nature of his job means no two days are truly the same, allowing him to exercise his creativity in different ways. Sam reports the news every weekday morning on 95.3 DNH, Classic Hits 105.3, and Wayne-Pike News Radio beginning at 6:00am and then DJ's Noontunes and the afternoon show on 95.3 DNH. Sam joined the Bold Gold community in an interesting way; while on winter break he noticed the station banners hanging up in town. Knowing he wanted a job in radio, he rushed there just in time to see the 2014 Michael G. Stanton Shower for Charity wrapping up. He offered to help put away a speaker and met the president of Bold Gold, Vince Benedetto. The rest is history! Sam has two favorite songs; “One Foot” by Walk The Moon and “Havana” by Camilla Cabello and Young Thug. A lot of his free time is dedicated to role-playing games. When Sam isn't at work he is brushing up on rules, writing characters, and developing adventures.
