Justin Moore Joins Arkansas’ 103.7 The Buzz As Morning Sports Show Co-Host
Multi-Platinum country artist Justin Moore has added radio personality to his growing list of titles. Moore will join Arkansas’ 103.7 The Buzz as co-host of the station’s morning drive-time program, “Morning Mayhem,” which will air weekdays from 6-10 a.m. CT.
Debuting on Dec. 30, he joins longtime Buzz personalities David Bazzel, Roger Scott and R.J. Hawk. “Morning Mayhem” will launch with Moore as co-host at a remote broadcast from Tampa, Florida, before the Arkansas Razorbacks’ 2022 Outback Bowl game against the Penn State Nittany Lions on New Year’s Day.
“Long before my success in country music, I was a die-hard fan of all Arkansas Razorback sports,” Moore shares. “Growing up in Arkansas, you learn to love the Razorbacks early. No matter what part of the state you’re from, you’re born calling the Hogs. Now I have an outlet for talking about my team.” He continues, “I’m thrilled to be part of a show that is dedicated to just talking about life in Arkansas–whether that be spirited debates about Razorback sports or other topics of interest to listeners.”
“Justin has a dynamic personality, which is essential when you’re helping wake up listeners at 6 a.m.,” adds Bazzel. “His knowledge of the Razorbacks is encyclopedic, and his love for the state of Arkansas is as genuine as it is infectious. And, while Justin is a country superstar, he is also a husband and father who loves his family and state. I can’t wait for our listeners to get to know him on a more personal level.”

Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation Provides Christmas Gifts For Over 120 Foster Children
The Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation (DCCMF) is spreading holiday cheer throughout Dickson County, Tennessee.
The foundation recently purchased presents for more than 120 children in foster care in Dickson County, including bicycles and power wheels assembled by local firefighters. Students from Creek Wood and Dickson County High Schools wrapped the gifts prior to them being delivered to the families.
“I’m thrilled that everyone came together to make Christmas brighter for children in foster care in Dickson County-from the firefighters to high school students, so many people gave of their time to contribute to this special cause,” shares Dickson County resident, country music entertainer, and Army veteran Craig Morgan.
“It starts with a single wish list from each child, then the community, DCS and the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation work side by side to ensure the foster children have their wishes fulfilled,” adds Department of Children’s Services’ Jackie (Hopkins) Poteet. “For some of these children, these gifts under a tree on Christmas morning is a first–first real Nike shoes, first bicycle, first Barbie house or first necklace. Those items mean so much to these children who have never had it before. Craig Morgan has found a way to spread some happiness to over 120 foster care children and how amazing is that!”
U.S. Senate Confirms Jessica Rosenworcel To Lead Federal Communications Commission
On Tuesday, Dec. 7, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Jessica Rosenworcel as chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). With this vote, which came in at 68-to-31, she has become the first woman to lead in the commission’s 87-year history.
Rosenworcel’s new five-year term will see her leading the FCC since last January when President Biden elevated her to Acting Chair. She originally joined the Commission in 2001, working as an attorney and advisor to former Commissioner Michael Copps. Rosenworcel has spent time on Capitol Hill and was nominated to fill a Democratic seat in 2011 by President Obama. After a stint away from the FCC after her term ran out, she was renominated by President Trump in 2017.
Throughout her over two decades-long career, Rosenworcel has focused on issues such as broadband access and “the homework gap”–the inability of poor children to access the web away from school. She has also backed most proposals to remove outdated rules for broadcasters.
