Weekday Mornings


Craig Warvel
Weekday Mornings 5:30-10


Ohio State spawn, born in Columbus, Ohio.

Grew up in seven homes in Ohio, New York and Indiana as father ran from the law. 

Worked on farms, then construction and learned that no one will question you if you have a shovel over your shoulder and walk like you know where you’re going.  Realized there had to be an easier way to make a living.

Graduated from SUNY Geneseo while working in the dining hall.  Confirmed that looking like you know where you’re going works and there had to be an easier way to make a living.

Left with a degree in Speech Communications and immediately started talking like I knew where I was going at hometown radio station.

Found my “forever” home in Erie in 1981.  Made a baby.  Danced like no one was watching.

Still talking like I know what I’m doing.  Teamed up with Bob, who, as it turned out, doesn’t really like working much, either.  Stay tuned.
