Kim Zachary has returned to The Big D after nearly two decades in Springfield...because there's no place like home. Born and raised in Avon, Kim is a UConn grad who landed her first radio job as a reporter in Western Mass. Within 3 years, she was back in CT working here on the Big D! After a few side ventures Kim headed back to MA where she met her husband and they worked as a morning radio team for 17 years. After a short foray into television, Kim is back on DRC-FM as the co-host of Mike and Kim in the Morning and she couldn't be happier! Kim is an active supporter of the Jimmy Fund and co-creator of Katelynn's Ride, a family cycling event in the fight against cancer. She has earned a lifetime achievement award from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, a Visionary award from the Jimmy Fund Council, several broadcasting awards, and recognition for her pregnancy blog. Kim is mom to one beautiful daughter and four rescue dogs. She and her family live in Somers.
Our ace traffic reporter has been heard doing traffic and news reports up and down the East Coast from Maine to New York City.

She finally landed a spot with Mike and Kim in the Morning fulfilling a long time dream of being part of a successful morning show. A few of her favorite things include superheroes, home improvement shows, vampires and witches. Cindy and her husband Chris are the proud parents of an adorable rescue dog named Charlie.

Grahame comes from a true "radio" family...her parents met while working at a pop station in Hartford back in the 60's (hence her awesome radio name!)! In fact, except for a quick one-day stint as a doughnut waitress, an early job working the DJ booth at the Coventry Roller Carnival and working in the gas booth at a local convenience store, Grahame's entire adult life has been devoted to the art of broadcasting! These days Grahame splits her day both behind the scenes as Program Director for The Big D and behind the mic working alongside you from 9 til 2!
When she's not eating, drinking, breathing or sleeping radio, Grahame's a modern day mom, juggling work and family at home in Manchester - she's very active with her children's elementary school, Girl Scouts, and has mastered the art of facebooking in the laundry room at midnight.
Weekdays 2PM-7PM, Saturday 10AM-3PM
Floyd Wright has been a part of Connecticut radio since 1978. He grew up in Wallingford listening to all the great radio personalities in Hartford, New Haven, and New York city on his dad’s gigantic ‘Zenith multiband stratosphere all tube radio’. Over the years Floyd has been involved in raising money for muscular dystrophy, the Arthritis Foundation, and the March of Dimes, and has been given three awards from Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Floyd currently resides in Newington with his lovely wife ‘Miss Susan’, a former dancer/choreographer who is now happy making libations at the Pequabuck Golf Club in Pequabuck, a part of Bristol. He’s excited about working at The Big D, after all, it’s the station that put the ‘fun’ into radio. Floyd’s goal is to continue that Connecticut tradition.
From "Frantic Fridays" to wide open highways, Nichole watches the roads so you can travel easier on them. Nichole joins Floyd Wright weekday afternoons to ponder the day's weird news and get you to where you have to go. An Emerson College and Central Connecticut State University alum, Nichole's radio career has taken her all around New England since 2003. She's made stops in New Hampshire, Maine, Boston and more. She's happy to add her time at the Big D to the list! When she's not behind the microphone and peering at traffic cameras, she enjoys travelling (by car, train or plane), attending Red Sox games, cheese, concerts and music of all kinds, bowling (candlepin or duckpin) and board game nights with friends. Nichole is also an avid supporter of charitable causes, including the National MS Society, Connecticut Children's Medical Center, Human Rights Campaign, the Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
