Phil Quinn

Host of "The Wake Up Call"

Father of two, employed at 1017 the Point radio station, former member of City Council, actively trying to support my community. Why I love doing this show is because our community (Wayne County, Indiana) has so many positive things going for it. I want to help be a megaphone for the great things and help silence the chronic naysayers. I am passionate about my faith, my kids.
