Jeff is the newest member of the WINK-FM team. He actually got the job because he was caller 9, but that's another story. Over the last 20 plus years Jeff has worked in Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Atlanta and West Palm Beach before moving to Ft. Myers. Jeff and his wife Azil are so happy to be in Southwest Florida and enjoy hanging at the beach, playing golf and going out as much as possible. My wife and I are very social people, we love to meet new folks and enjoy trying new restaurants whenever we get the chance. I'm really happy to be part of the team that is bringing WINK-FM back to Southwest Florida. If you're up early you can hear Jeff every morning from 6a-10a.
LIZ STARK Mid-day
Liz Stark spends her WINK work day with you every weekday from 10-2. With over two decades in broadcasting, Liz has worked in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Nashville, New York and Chicago, along with doing commercial voice work heard across the country from her home studio. She came to Ft. Myers three years ago for the sunshine and sand. You've probably bumped into her at a local thrift or farmer's market. Staff at WINK FM joke they want to put a live cam in the studio to catch her dance moves as she lip syncs to Adele, Andy Gibb or Pink. When she's not turning her headphones up full blast, she's juggling laundry, trying new recipes and picking up the Legos her son leaves all over the living room floor. "I think a work day has to fly by. It's not always easy to deal with the stress of the day to day and there's something about a song that can just make it all okay. I love what I do and look forward every single day to being a part of WINK FM."

JASON DREW Evenings
Like most of us in the arts, Jason grew up as an avid fan of television, Broadway and music, with a desire and passion to bring entertainment to the world through his unique style and endearing persona. His career started in theater, which brought him to musical theater training in NYC. After a run of regional stage work, Jason discovered another facet of the entertainment world where he landed a role as radio host. His radio career took him from a tiny station in Connecticut, to the "Steel City" of Pittsburgh, PA - then finally to New York, where he worked as an on-air personality for the legendary WPLJ 95.5 for seven years. While in New York, he had the great opportunity to spread his talents nationally, with the syndicated show "Radio With A Twist," as well as several Sirius satellite radio channels, where he shined the most on "Broadway's Best."
