About Bryan

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, but have lived in California off and on long enough to dry off, from the wet Northwest weather. My wife, Mary, and I have three kids, Jordan, Kenzie and Madison.

My passions are mission trips and photography and I especially love to combine the two. A picture I took while serving on a mission trip in Vietnam earned me first place, in the “People” section for the Sacramento Bee travel section.

I began my radio career when I was a junior in high school.

About Brandi

I grew up in Santa Barbara, California with my mom, dad, and two older sisters. I am a single mom to my son Shane. In my pre-KSGN life, I spent ten years working as a personal trainer. Then, I decided to attend school for radio broadcasting and television production. After that I worked as a voiceover artist and started doing news, traffic, and weather for various Southern California stations.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, creative writing and plan to start a crate garden. I am a self-professed germ-a-phobe, a purse horse, and want to learn how to cook!

Bryan and I officially became the morning show team June 2011 and are having a blast helping you start your day.

About Theresa

From a very early age, I had a dream on being on radio and TV. Then when I started college, at what is now Cedarville University, in Cedarville, Ohio I was pursuing a degree in Communication Arts and Professional Writing.

As far as the whole realm of radio, that opportunity was literally dropped in my lap. My friend, Betsy, who was a Nursing major had a really great voice so she was doing commercials for the radio station on campus (the CDR Radio Network). She introduced me to her boss and the rest is history.

I auditioned reading some news and I know it was not that good but he hired me to fill in. Before I knew it, I was being asked to do all kinds of things including lots of weather and newscasts. Ever since that time, I have been able to work in a number of markets like this great place we call the Inland Empire.

I’m incredibly passionate about the music we play on KSGN because I know that it is having an impact on lives, bringing those who are searching - to truth.

I adore my family which is made up of my best friend, hubby Terry, aka personal chef, daughter, Johanna, and son, Jordan, and let’s not forget our other babies, a Jack Russell Terrier named JoJo and a Min Pin named Baxter.

Melissa Chavez is the producer of "Morning Friends, Bryan & Brandi" and is onair Mon-Fri 10A-2P, plus hosts the MyKSGN Family Show Sunday afternoons at 1PM.

About Melissa

I took a road trip with my parents to San Francisco when I was a kid and to this day my mom says I talked for the entire six-plus hour drive.  So, let's just say talking for a living is a perfect fit.

I was born and raised in the IE, headed south to UCSD to study broadcast communications, and after years in mainstream television news felt called to move into radio ministry.

When I'm not in front of the mic or pushing buttons for "Morning Friends, Bryan & Brandi", I love reading, traveling, and hanging out with my two favorite people on the planet - my son, Dylan, and daughter, Ava.

About Penny

From the second Penny heard the big radio stations in Boston, God had put it in her heart that this is what she was meant to do. She has moved all around the USA on her radio journey traveling the path God had in store for her in radio and now she feels very blessed to be able to share contagious encouragement with Southern California's Keep The Faith.

Life can be difficult at times, but sometimes all you need is a little reminder that God IS there and he IS in control... you are NOT alone.

Penny is the mother of 3 beautiful boys (Alex, Ricky and Casey) and an amazing IT husband. (Plus a 21-year-old cockatiel and a 1 year old puppy.)
