Tim Daugherty

staff tim

Tim Daugherty has played a variety of roles with WONE since the day it was born on January 1, 1985. A member of the original staff, he has been heard on every shift around the clock; morning, noon, and nights, even overnights!

These days, Tim is back on the shift he helmed so many years ago, helping you rock away your workday from 10am-3pm.

The Rock & Roll Authority as he's been called, (and not just because Daugherty and Authority rhyme so well), is known to drop in weird and little known factoids about almost everything rock-related under the sun. Tune in and see for yourself.
