The Fitz Show - listen mornings 5a - 9a!
Fitz is a 6’7” 245 pound teddy bear! He looks like an NFL linebacker, but is a softy. Fitz lives for reality TV. Be glad you can laugh at him and don’t have to live with him.
Listening to Fitz is not like anything else you’ve ever heard or experienced. Fitz has been described as someone with a huge heart who lives his life on the radio. His conversations and stories range from comical to profoundly honest. Some have described Fitz’s show as a radio hybrid of “The Tonight Show” and “Saturday Night Live” with parody songs and comedy bits. With the cast’s individual personalities and lively discussions on every-day subjects, the show creates a powerful emotional bond with its audience and covers topics that moms and daughters alike want to hear. It’s a show that mom can listen to in the car with the kids and know the show will never embarrass her.
Often described as an “emotional roller coaster,” Fitz is renowned for being completely irreverent and hilarious one moment, then profoundly touching the next. Fitz’s show is a family-friendly, character-based reality show. Every morning, Fitz and the gang reveal everything about their lives. The show is a daily soap opera that listeners do not want to miss.
Fitz describes it as high school with a paycheck! It’s not just a radio show…it’s entertainment that you become a part of. After hearing Fitz once, you’ll be hooked.
Fitz grew up as the middle child in Bowie, Texas. Fitz’s mother, a theater arts teacher, always said he would be the President of the United States or in the state penitentiary. Thankfully, he put his energy in the right direction and ended up somewhere right in the middle, choosing a career in radio. From the young age of six, Fitz could be heard on the airwaves calling radio stations begging the DJs to put him on the air. Years later, as president of student body for his high school, Fitz was responsible for school announcements every morning. Even then he couldn’t resist making his daily two minutes on the intercom as entertaining as possible for all who listened. “I went to my principal one day and told him that his announcements were boring. I begged him to let me do the daily announcements and before I knew it, I had 3 minutes every morning to start people’s day with a laugh.” And the rest, as they say, is history.
Fitz was always striving for the next best thing, so he made a demo tape and sent it off to 93Q in Houston, TX. They offered Fitz the co-host position for their top-rated morning show. From there he had stints in Oklahoma City, OK, and Dallas, TX, where at the age of 23, he was the host of his own morning show and the youngest ever to accomplish that in a top ten radio market. Fitz was recently the host of the top rated, “Fitz in the Morning” show on 100.7 The Wolf in Seattle, WA where he spent 12 years as one of the highest rated and most recognized brands in the Seattle-Tacoma market. Fitz was voted “Best Radio Personality” for eight consecutive years by the viewers of NBC-KING 5 TV.
In January 2011, Fitz was chosen from thousands of radio hosts throughout the nation to fill in for Regis on Live with Regis and Kelly where he impressed producers and ABC executives with his interview of Sir Anthony Hopkins and other segments on the show. He is known as the only person ever to “High-Five” Sir Anthony Hopkins during an interview. Kelly Ripa almost poisoned Fitz by putting lavender oil in his mouth while giving him a facial. Fitz survived and it made for great television. Elsewhere on the small screen, Fitz was also the host of the nationally syndicated show “Fitz on Fox All Access USA.”
During Fitz’s downtime, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, singing and watching reruns of “Breaking Bad”, “The Golden Girls”, & “The Wonder Years.”
In 2010, Fitz brought Jenna Mae to work phone lines as an intern . He instantly saw potential in her spunky country lifestyle. Jenna did a year internship with Fitz and it was the time of her life. After her internship she went on to study social welfare at The University Of Washington..
Jenna Mae was later hired on the show in 2015 as Fitz’s Assistant Producer/Head of Security after a group of rowdy 8th graders forced Fitz to lick white dog poop. From that moment forward Fitz knew he needed protection. Whether it’s protecting Fitz from potential danger to getting him a nonfat vanilla latte, Jenna is always there.
Jenna Mae is a mother of three and the proud owner of an urban farm complete with ducks, chickens, goats, a dog, a cat and three bubble guppies. Jenna is like every country girl out there and enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting, and spending time with her beautiful family. From chopping firewood to baking a homemade lasagna there isn’t much Jenna can’t do.
She believes that every American should have God, glutes and guns.
Jenna Mae is also an advocate for change. She participates in countless races, fundraisers and events to help any organization or person in need. Jenna strongly believes that through unity we can change the world.
Her philosophy: “God gave us two hands to help others, so we better use that gift right”.
Movies have always been a big part of Drew’s life. A “black market” satellite dish brought the world of 24-hour movies to Drew’s childhood home in the mid 1980’s… And he never went outdoors again. In High School Drew produced and directed 2 short films in 2 years, each one winning the competition they were entered in.
Drew attended an exclusive engineering college in Michigan in an attempt to have a legitimate career, but there just wasn’t enough excitement in the computer lab or at the drafting table. Drew left for his next adventure: he enlisted with the US Marine Corps. and was stationed in San Diego, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, and in Washington.
Drew returned to College at Washington State University, one of the best radio broadcast schools in the nation. After college, Drew worked as a bartender, a builder, a salesperson, and a metallurgist.
A chance encounter with Fitz just after he moved to Seattle to helm “Fitz in the Morning" and providing an opportunity to share his movie reviews with the world.
Drew lets you know if the movie is good or bad; worth the time and money or not… and he is particularly fond of reporting when a movie is really bad.
In late 2006 Drew became a regular contributor on “Fitz in the Morning” as Drew the Movie Guy and as Fitz’ only real friend off the air. Shortly afterward Fitz launched “The Hit List with Fitz” Drew's reviews found themselves on more than 100 stations across the US and Canada.
Tanner loves to see how the world changes with technology. Also, his love for sweaters doesn’t help his sweating problem whatsoever, and his favorite activity is taking his 30-pound cat, Chester, to the nearest burger joint. Tanner got his start in radio in 2014 at Central Washington University’s radio station: KCWU. He was apart of the on-air staff that was presented an award for Best Collegiate Radio Station by the Intercollegiate Broadcast System. Tanner also attended the Hubbard Radio Talent Institute where he earned a certificate for sales and marketing.
In 2016, Tanner met Fitz while working at a water park tossing out t-shirts and bumper stickers. Tanner ended up interning for Fitz for 4 months until Fitz encouraged him to dropout of college, crash on his mom’s couch full time and join the show full-time as a digital producer.
In Tanner’s free time he enjoys looking at the best memes the internet can provide, making fun of Fitz’s dad hats and Netflix and chillin’…. by himself of course.
