MEET THE EMCEE

Buzz from Country Favorites Kiim 99.5 adds a smile to your ride home, with country favorites, traffic updates, and fun things you can win. He's won air personality of the year awards from both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He lives in Marana with his wife and daughter, and when he's not on the radio you might see him riding his bike on The Loop or walking Wrangler the Dog in the neighborhood. Buzz is also heard across America every day on many of Westwood One's country stations.

PEANUT BUTTER FOOD DRIVE

Support the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona! Please bring unopened cans/jars of peanut butter to be placed in multiple collection bins throughout the event.
