Sal Palazzolo, Program Director, 99.9 The HAWK/WODE-FM, commented: "Joel is an excellent example of how hard work pays off. Joel joined our team back in the fall of 2016 and worked his way through the ranks of Promotions, Production, and Part-Time On-Air work, quickly becoming Producer of The Hawk Morning Show with Rick Michaels. By pairing Joel on-air with our heritage Morning Host, Rick Michaels, It will only help take The HAWK to new heights! Once we put them together in the room, we knew we had something truly special and unique. It's great to curate the next generation of talent like Joel to invest in the future of our business."
