Listen to Alex Wellen on 100.1FM WJBD Weekdays from 1 - 7 PM
My name is Alex Wellen and I'm from the big city of Smithton Illinois. It’s near St. Louis. It was always my dream to work in radio. After realizing I hated Computer Science I decided to make my dream into my career. First I started by announcing college basketball for Southwestern Illinois College. Then I went on to SIUE and graduated with a Mass Communications degree in 2012. I interned at the St. Louis radio station 105.7 the Point in the summer of 2012. After relentlessly sending out resumes to every radio station under the sun I landed an interview here at WJBD. After bothering Bruce, the general manager, for many weeks he decided to give me a shot. I produce all the graphics for website and host the afternoon show from 1 to 7 PM.
