JIM AND MARY IN THE MORNING
The broadcast “bug” bit Waterloo native Jim Schreck at an early age. Before he was even 10, a transistor radio was his constant companion. By age 16, Jim had a weekly radio show at the Hobart campus station WEOS, followed shortly by a part-time gig at WSFW in Seneca Falls.
During his college years, he was production director at two different radio stations and had part-time shifts at two others. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Geneseo State University, Jim went full-time at WSFW until it became a part of The Finger Lakes Radio Group in 2000.
At The Finger Lakes Radio Group, Jim has held a number of positions in News and Programming, eventually becoming Program Director and Morning Host on WFLR in Dundee from 2005 until 2008.
In 2008, Jim became Co-host on Mix98.5 and also serves as Production Director for the Finger Lakes Radio Group. Jim’s love of all things radio and music extends to his life outside the station, first as a collector of tube radios from the 1920s and 30s, and also as a multi-instrumental musician who regularly records and produces his own music.
Mary grew up with one goal (well, 2 goals if you count having a family). She wanted to perform on stage. She found a great release for that energy with Newark Players, Phelps Clifton Springs Community Theatre, Auburn Players, Seneca Community Players, and Geneva Theatre Guild. At the suggestion of a friend she decided to try her hand at radio. She received a degree in Radio and Television Broadcast Communications from Auburn Community College – and set out to be incredible (well, at the very least – adequate).
Mike and Mary In the Morning was a hoot, however, as her kids got older, she needed to find more time for the family (note the second of the 2 goals), so she took a bit of a break. The opportunity to come back to radio and reprise her role as “Mary” on the Jim and Mary Show has been a major WIN !!!
Mary loves cookies, spending time with her family (especially grandson, Harrison), reading, sewing, and napping… (not necessarily in that order)
SORAH DEVLIN NOON-5PM AND SATURDAY MORNING
Sorah was given advice by her father when she was a child: “Communication is the key to your success.” This has stayed with her for years, leading her to her interest in broadcasting. She graduated Waterloo Senior High in 2000, earning Theatre Arts and Liberal Arts degrees from Finger Lakes Community College in 2003. Sorah has been part of the Mix 98.5 on air family since 2008. When not behind a mic in a studio, she can be found behind one at home with freelance voice work, or playing with her two little ones, who received the same advice from her that she was given by their grandfather.
