“She’s just a small town girl living in a lonely world.”Hey guys my name is Brooke Starr also known as Starr on hot 102.7! I have been in the radio business probably longer than most of you have been alive. I started out in 1999 in Macon Georgia at a station called Q106, it’s a rock station. My sister and I won Stone Temple pilots tickets off the radio and when we went to go pick them up, I told the DJ that I would love his job one day. At that time there wasn’t an interview process. Radio can’t really be taught, you’re either born with it or you’re not, so he simply said “with that smile you have a job.” I learned the entire kitchen, yes, even switching out tapes, and radio reels. I moved to Valdosta in late 2000 and immediately went straight to the radio stations. Because I had already been trained I was hired by the program manager who is now our mayor,  Scott James. I worked for  RTG media On stations mix 96, the John boy and Billy show, and had the time of my life. I thought it was just a fun gig and today I can look back 20 years later and say I’ve had the best career in the world. When hot 102.7 came to town , I was called to be one of the first original DJs. The location was the old airport off of Madison highway in Valdosta Georgia. With passion and drive the OG’s hit the streets in a fire truck, shot out T-shirts’, and made Hot 102.7 a brand! I still call Hot 102.7 “my baby” today, and mama is glad to be back! Before google, I was your resource for all things pop culture, and honestly I’m still the first With the dirt. I’m so excited to join you on your afternoon drive, and can’t wait to talk hot topics, and blast out  Valdosta Hit Music Channel! Join me every afternoon from 3-7pm! Be there or be square “cause you’re not around”….I know…mind blown.

happy new year
