We'd Like to Introduce you to a new member of the KUDZU 104.9 Crew!


Kevin Freeman (12Mid-5A)

I caught the radio bug at a young age.  As a kid he would lay in bed at night listening to stations from Chicago, Cincinnati, Nashville and Pittsburgh. Then as a teenager, he got to work at his high school radio station.   FYI, I’m slightly taller than Kenny Chesney and about a foot shorter than Trace Adkins.  In 1984 I married my high school sweetheart.  I have 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. When I'm not on the air playing my favorite music (country) or hanging out with my family, I enjoy working outside.  I love getting on my tractor and mowing.  It is like therapy to me! I am also actively involved in my church, and serve on the board of an inner city community center.
