Sarah Spencer

Sarah Spencer

10 AM – 3 PM
Monday – Friday

Sarah stepped into her role in 2020 during the height of the pandemic when hiring other announcers was out of the question. What was initially a “temporary” slot, Sarah felt right at home with the 80s she had cut her broadcasting chops with on Rock 99 in 1985, and WCVM in 1987. When she’s not keeping you company middays on KOOL 105, she’s either painting furniture or riding her horse she’s had for over 20 years. We’re so glad Sarah found her way to our microphone.
