The Jack and Nikki Show

Jack Logar and Nikki are both proud West Virginia natives. Jack's lifelong love for broadcasting began in an abandoned coal mining town on Point Mountain, where the elevation allowed him to pick up signals from distant radio stations. Jack's unguarded, homegrown style makes for a "warts and all" approach to radio that keeps him unique among his peers. Nikki returned home to West Virginia after broadcasting on stations in Ohio, Mississippi and New York. Her passion for radio is exceeded only by her love for chocolate, coffee and cookies.Relive your favorite moments or get caught up on all the hilarity from the week with WVAQ's dynamic morning duo.
