Tim Daugherty

staff tim homeTim Daugherty has played a variety of roles with WONE since the very first day it was on the air. 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 the guy to turn to for a rockin' ride home after a hard day at work. Tune him in weekdays from 2-7pm.  

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.

Driver's Ed
