Brian Christopher: 6-10a
Hi, I’m Brian Christopher. Twenty-eight years ago I started my radio career at a small AM station in Sherman, Texas. Between now and then, radio has taken me (and my family) all around this wonderful country of ours. We’ve lived in California, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Florida, and now finally back in Texas! My wife Diana and I have been married 22 years (she says it feels more like 32…hmmm) and have two beautiful daughters, Briana and Liana. Holly the dog rounds out our immediate family. I’m a roller coaster nut and also an old movie buff, er, I mean I like old movies, not that I’m old. (In case you’re wondering, this year I celebrated the 18th anniversary of my 29th birthday…you do the math.) I’m also a big Evel Knievel fan, love sports (embarrassing moment: being new to Bryan/College Station, the first time I heard someone say “Gig ‘em!”, I replied “God bless you”), and drive a little clown car. Oh, I’m also a long-suffering Minnesota Vikings fan. I’m thankful to be here at Peace 107 and am so glad you’re listening! Sit back and enjoy our uplifting and encouraging music; it’ll offer some peace in your life and remind you that God cares! Brian And now, my five undeniable truths of life:
- Jesus is Lord.
- Evel Knievel will always be cool.
- Kirk is better than Picard.
- There are no “gentlemen” in Gentlemen’s Clubs.
- Autumn is the best season.
Annie Nance: 6-9am & 11am-1pm
Hello, I’m Annie Nance. I’m sure you’ve noticed the “accent”… I’m originally from southern WI. It was at the Christian radio station in Madison, WI where I worked with Brian Christopher (the first time). Radio was a natural fit for me as all of my report cards as a kid said, “She would do so much better in class if she didn’t talk so much!”
When I was growing up, my dad was a teacher, so we would spend the summers going on adventures. I think that set me up to see life as one big adventure. In 2014 life tried to throw me for a loop, but God…!! God took the things that looked like “loss” and turned them into “change”. He reawakened my love for adventure and travel. My travels brought me to Texas where I met my husband, Danny.
Cumulatively, we have 4 kids and 7 grandkids. You’ll often hear us bragging about them. We are new residents to the BCS area and have quickly fallen in love with it!
Jami Mayberry: 2-6p
Jami was born and raised in Amarillo, Tx, and got her start in radio as a freshman while attending Texas A&M University. After stints in Oklahoma City and Southern California, she settled in Nashville, Tn in 1990 and stayed for 23 years, doing country and Christian radio. She was on XM Satellite Radio when it first began, doing country programming from a studio in the lobby of the Country Music Hall of Fame. She not only did radio but was on the State Senate Staff for the 103rd General Assembly working for Senator Mike Walker. She also became the Music Industry Liaison at the Tn Film, Entertainment & Music Commission for 2 years before returning to her first love, radio, in 2005.
She dreamed of coming back home to Texas and that dream was realized in 2013 by joining the staff at Peace 107. Right after joining our Bryan Broadcasting family, Jami was diagnosed with a form of gynecological cancer. It was a shock to her and all of us. After surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment, she was back on the air by the end of the year. She shared her journey with the Peace family and still values your prayers as she returns to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston every 3 months for check-ups. Her favorite quote is, “To know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is success.” Thanks, Ralph Waldo Emerson! That has been a focus of Jami’s life: to make a difference for Christ. She feels radio is her life’s calling. The verse that God has woven through her life over and over again is:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Thoughts of welfare and not of calamity. To give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
When not in the studio, Jami’s passions include her faith, travel, gardening, catching up with friends and helping with pet rescue organizations. Jami is a recovering perfectionist and is eternally trying to lose 20 pounds! She is divorced but has many life-long friendships, and loves meeting new people. You can find her afternoons 2 to 6 pm on Peace 107.
