What's up! I'm Val and i'm excited to be back and working at WRRV after quite a few years. I was on the air at WRRV from 2005-2011 and then moved to New England for work. I moved back to the Hudson Valley in March of 2018 and i'm stoked to be able to be back at WRRV hanging with you weekdays from 10-3, especially during the '90's at noon! Pearl Jam and Coldplay are my absolute favorites, but these days I seem to get outvoted by my toddler who prefers Imagine Dragons and Panic! At The Disco!
