What’s up everyone! My name is Nick Chappell and you can hear me weekday mornings on 96.5 The Coast from 6-10am. I’ve lived in Hampton Roads my entire life and love everything the area has to offer. I’ve got a great wife and 2 awesome boys that keep us super busy. When I’m not hanging out around town, you will more than likely find me at Disney World in Florida. We’re all a nerd for something, and Disney theme parks are my thing! Anyway, I’ve gotta go but thanks so much for listening and leave me a voicemail I’ll play on-air by calling 757-627-9827.
Meet Our DJ's
Hey! I’m Emily and I’ve called Hampton Roads my home for my entire life. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I’ve been in radio for quite a few years now and love it. I have one sweet little boy named Leighton aka Baby Drew Baby. You may hear me call my husband Drew Baby — a nickname that will haunt him forever. I suffer from a lifelong serious case of FOMO, so if there is something happening in Hampton Roads – I’m there! Thanks for checking us out and make sure to tune in from 10a-2p.
Off the air, I’m a pretty simple man. I live in Olde Towne Portsmouth with my girlfriend and our dog Scout. I’m a news junkie. I have a deep passion for music and can find something beautiful in every genre there is. I’m also a huge baseball fan. I’m a Hampton Roads native, growing up in the Western Branch part of Chesapeake. I was lucky enough to attend a high school that had a broadcasting class, and I began my radio journey at 88.7 WFOS-FM in Chesapeake. My first ‘real’ job was actually right here at Sinclair Communications, where I worked for several years until 2016. After spending the last few years working at some great radio stations on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, I have returned to Hampton Roads at 96.5 The Coast!
Hi, I’m Eric Worden, and it is the thrill of a lifelong career to return to the Coast. This year marks my 30th year in local broadcasting, and as Morning Guy from the Original Coast, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this anniversary than to return to where it all began! Proud to be the “Voice” of the all new 96.5, and the host of the resurrected “Sunrise on the Coast!” Join me Saturdays from 9-11am for an eclectic mix of acoustic, roots rock, cool covers, deep tracks, new music and Coast Classics. We may also throw in some local flavor and vinyl sides! Follow me and say “hi” @morningguyeric on Facebook and Instagram, and catch me Mon-Fri 6-10am on sister station 93.7 BOB-FM!
Sunrise On The Coast
The Coast brings you Sunrise on the Coast every Saturday morning from 9am-11am with your host Eric Worden. Two hours of easy acoustic and indie music to wake up to exclusively on The Coast.
