We gathering in the ‘can room’ at Good People Brewery. Reg and Will gave the Bham Now audience some rare personal insight into what makes them tick.
“What was your greatest moment on the air?”
According to Reg, it is “anytime I’m behind the mic’.
According to Will, other than the day he joined Reg on The Morning Blend, (September 12th, 2016) he counts moments on the Oh Brother Radio show with his brother Reed as some of the greatest moments on air.
“I talk to college and high schools a lot and I say, ‘if you can, you need to find something that you enjoy and your good at…'”
“If you could go back 20 years, what would you do differently?”
Will says he would have “taken Dave Ramsey a little more seriously…”
Other than that, both love what they do and wouldn’t change a thing.
We did find that Will prefers a little structure and Reg likes to ‘go with the flow’. That’s probably why they make a great partnership!
“What do you love about Birmingham?”
The growth and revitalization within Birmingham is not something to pass over. Both love the direction our city is taking in terms of development, restaurants and community.
BTW – Reg LOVES Ethiopian food.
“What are you guys most excited about for 2017?”
Other than the show, The Morning Blend, which Reg described as “just fun and having a good time”, Will is genuinely excited about the city elections coming up.
“There are people running now, and if they get support, will they actually make a difference?”
Bham Now presented a check to representatives from Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) and to Kulture City, the chosen charities of Reg and Will, respectively.
As a bonus, the GBHS Adoption Truck was on location with some of the most adorable, adoptable pets you can image. Here are a few:
Thank you, Will and Reg, for a fun and interesting evening!
Stay tuned for our next BOLD series to be announced soon.
