John Harper
started in broadcast media when he was 17 years old, and he is thrilled to now share his expertise in radio with the network that has helped him so much in his spiritual growth over the past several years. In addition to being a well-known name in radio and television broadcasting, John has made it a priority to give back to his community and has received several awards for his dedication to worthy causes. John was raised Catholic and is still an active member of his original childhood parish, Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Stamford, Connecticut.

Glen Lewerenz

A native Minnesotan, Glen watches over the western outpost of Relevant Radio through his many studio windows in Minneapolis. In addition to practicing the accordion (very little), Glen enjoys sports, music and hanging out with his family.
