Shane only got hired for his first radio job because he spent so much time loitering around the WJUN studios, the manager decided to start paying him. Whether that decision was deliberate or accidental, Shane has been loitering around the station for almost 30 years. He has an extensive knowledge of music...particularly the length of songs...and this serves him well once every few years when he gets the music category in Trivial Pursuit. Shane says his official last day of broadcasting will be the day Justin Bieber is considered an "oldie." Shane can currently be heard on Juniata County Radio's Wheels hosting "The Shane Nelson Show" weekdays from 9am to 2pm and on the "Solid Gold Countdown" on Saturday and Sunday nights from 6pm to 8pm. In addition to being on the air, Shane also serves as the Programming Director for Wheels.

BOB ST. CLAIR
Bob has taught for the past 22 years in the Juniata County School District as well as the past four years as an adjunct faculty member for Penn State University…….and continues to love his job in the computer technology field every single day. Technology has changed along with the times over the past two decades, and along with his day-to-day teaching, Bob self-taught himself how to build and maintain websites and has maintained the Juniata High School website as well designed and maintains one for his church, Messiah Lutheran Church in Mifflintown. With his B.S. in Education from Shippensburg University in 1990 and Masters in Education from Bloomsburg in 2002, Bob took a jump into the “backstage” of broadcasting when the opportunity arose in the spring of 2015. To help fill the void of no radio stations delivering the listening needs to the citizens of Juniata County, especially high school sporting events, he brought forth a few outstanding students to not only assist in the background of Juniata County broadcasting, but also some to the microphone! Working as a part of a great team behind the scenes is a new opportunity and he looks forward to working even more for the people of Juniata County at Juniata County Radio.
Seth graduated from Juniata High School in 2016 and has maintained and acted as the administrator of Juniata County Radio since January 2015. As one of the top students of Mr. St. Clair at Juniata High School, Seth worked on successful websites over the past several years along with his “partner in crime, J.P. Towsey with the Towsey Train website as well as being an administrator for Central PA Alerts. He has brought his expertise, input, and sense of humor to our online team to make Juniata County Radio stand out and above the rest. Seth was also very instrumental in the change that occurred in April 2016 when Juniata County Radio left Webs in the dust to switch to Weebly as the website provider. He spent hours on the phone talking to incompetent tech support people yelling and screaming. His efforts were greatly appreciated by all of us with the exception of the Webs tech support people who probably would like to get a order of protection against him. Seth is looking forward to serving the community through this outlet. Seth owns several horses that race at various tracks & fairs throughout Pennsylvania and surrounding areas, he is also a firefighter for the Friendship Fire Company #1 in Port Royal. And yes, we confess, that picture under his name is not really Seth, that is just our logo.
Also a 2016 graduate Juniata High School, J.P. is helping to maintain and be the assistant director for Juniata County Radio. In addition to his computer talent, J.P. has helped in other ways behind the scenes, such as finding and managing the building for the Juniata County Radio Team to do their production, signage, and sales work! J.P.’s work ethic and sense of humor has been a great addition to the Juniata County Radio Team and he views this opportunity as one in which he is able to give back to the community. J.P. is the owner of the annual Towsey Train Open House, held each winter at his house and in his spare time, along with Seth Dowling, is also a firefighter for the Friendship Fire Company #1 in Port Royal and also served as the 2015-16 President of the Juniata High School F.F.A.
