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 98-5 WNYR and also serves as WNYR Program Director as well 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.

Sorah Devlin, weekends.
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. A
part of the WNYR on air family since 2008, she can also be heard
giving morning news on WEOS. 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.
