Jan Spencer

Jan was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, but lived half her life in Wisconsin, so she calls both states ‘home’. She went to a music school in Vancouver, BC Canada, and has a double master’s degree, an Masters in Business Administration and a Masters in Public Administration (can you say over-achiever?). She got her start in radio at WROK/WZOK in Rockford, IL then went to WJVL in Janesville, WI playing country music on the All Request Saturday Night show. While living in Madison, WI she worked at WIBA-FM doing the all request Saturday night show called, “Roll Your Own” (hey, it was classic rock, and it fit)! Jan is a big Green Bay Packers fan, loves the Tampa Bay Lightning, Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks. At her ‘real job’ she gets to travel all over the country as a trainer for a major credit card processing company, and absolutely loves the ‘roadie’ lifestyle. If she didn’t have that job, she’d be on tour with a band as a tour manager! You can hear Jan overnight on weekdays, Saturdays from 2p-7p and ‘whenever needed’ on WQYK, ‘like’ her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter @JanSPencerWQYK!
