The DJ's

Joel Karnick 98Q Country Morning Show

I started in radio way back in 1986 in Menomonie, WI. My radio career has taken me to Independence, IA; Marshall, MN; Amery, WI; Rice Lake, WI; Minneapolis, MN (KFAN); and finally, the last stop, WCQM/WPFP) in Park Falls, WI. I have worked here since March of 2000. After 30 years in radio, I've figured out that I'm really not qualified to do much else, so you are pretty much stuck with me! We have a great staff, and I enjoy coming to work every day. Tune into the morning show, and I'll see if I can make you a winner of one of our "Fabulous and Glamorous" prizes!

DJ Rick 98 Q-Country afternoon DJ 2PM to 7PM

Imported from the Milwaukee Suburb of Cudahy, DJ Rick has been blessed to call Northern Wisconsin home for over 34 years now. He has been employed by WCQM/WNBI(Now WPFP) on and off throughout the years, but has been the afternoon guy (2 pm to 7 pm) at WCQM since 1999. He says "I can't even call this a "job" because it's a pleasure walking into the studio every day. We really have a great group of people to work with". Outside of WCQM, he dabbles in quality control at Flambeau River Papers (34 years), is a high school basketball referee, umpires WIAA baseball & softball, and operated Arrow Entertainment mobile DJ service for over 20 years.He recently retired from the mobile DJ business after playing for a huge New Years Eve Wedding Dec. 31st 2007. He and his wife, Nancy, have been married for over 35 years and have two grown boys, Jason of Eau Claire, and Jeffrey of Las Vegas, along with the pride & joy of his life, his 4 year old grandson, Ethan. When he is not working he enjoys traveling (especially to Las Vegas, Mexico, Arizona, and Florida) golf, working around the house and grilling out with a cold one while following all of our Wisconsin sports teams. He says “My hope is that our listeners enjoy the afternoon show as much as I do putting it together. A little fun never hurt anyone. Life is too short to NOT enjoy each and every day.”

 Becca & Malone Saturday 5am to 10am
I (Sam Malone) grew up in Easton Pa, from a very tight Italian family, with pasta every Sunday and maybe even Monday and Tuesday with a strong value of FAMILY and Friends! At 43 years old I still pretend to be a quarterback in my backyard! I just realized a gym is good for you a few months ago, and work out 3 days a week, I love country music as well as oldies, favorite Country artists include Carrie, Tim and Miranda, Favorite all time would be Rolling Stones. And I (Becca) also grew up in Eastern PA! I am a wife, mom of 2 and a crazy Lord Of The Rings Fan! I love country music almost as much as you do, along with 80's & 90's Pop music...don't judge!

 Buzz Jackson Midnight to 5am
I grew up in the shadow of New York City. Being so close to the city gave me an appreciation for all kinds of cultures and music. In the 90s I fell in love with country music - but if you were to search my iPhone you'd find a healthy (or unhealthy, depending on how you look at it) dose of 80's pop music, too. I'm married with a daughter who loves all kinds of music. I love doing things in the community, and donate blood whenever I am eligible (I'm O-negative and that's always in demand!). When I'm not on the radio, I enjoy walking Wrangler The Dog around the neighborhood, riding the bike, catching a movie with my family, or checking out a country music concert.
