It’s like an awkward Cinderella story… Richmond radio girl looking for a new co-host stumbles into a Shockoe Slip bar and meets one of Richmond’s most charming bartenders – who happens to be an award winning writer and someone with a lot to say. And thus, the beginning of Play Mornings with Melissa & Jack.
We’re not quite sure how they’ve picked up so many awards for their show (bribery? blackmail?) but Melissa & Jack are humbled and thankful to have been honored by the readers of Style Weekly Magazine as “Best Morning Show” for the past three years, several awards by Richmond Magazine and named “Best Morning Show in the State” by the Virginia Association of Broadcasters.
Melissa Chase has been waking up Richmonders for more than a decade. In addition to radio, you can hear her voice and see her on national TV commercials, as an entertainment expert for local news reports and hosting numerous charity events around RVA. A Richmond native, she now lives with her husband Tyler and two daughters London & Ruby… MORE MELISSA HERE.
Jack Lauterback celebrated his 5th anniversary in radio with 103.7 Play in October. When he’s not on air, you can usually find him at the bar, reading or goofing off with his buddies. Also, check out his acclaimed column, Punch Drunk, which is published in Style Weekly…. MORE JACK HERE.
