Brandon has over 10 years of experience in radio. He attended North Greenville University and graduated in 2006 with a BA in Communications. He actually started his career in radio at WSNW (then 1150 AM) in the Fall of 2006 as Sports Director and Sales. After a brief time at Clear Channel in 2007, Brandon came back to local radio in Oconee County and hasn’t looked back. In March of 2014 WSNW launched it’s new frequency, 94.1 The Lake.

Nonna Carlson
Morning Show Host

Although born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with extensive family
throughout the northern part of the state, Nonna’s maternal family has
been in the Seneca area since her great, great uncle John Harper
helped survey the town. She attended Seneca High School, Tri County
Tec and American University in Washington DC. She was a founding
member of Oconee Community Theatre and served as Artist-in-Residence
with WAPAC (Writing and Performing Across Communities) and the
Celebration Ensemble at Clemson University.

Nonna started in radio when she was in high school, typing program
logs for WSBF, the student station at Clemson University and later
working for WEPR-FM and the South Carolina Educational Radio Network.
She actually started her commercial radio career at WSNW-WBFM when the
station was still located on Radio Station Road in Seneca…moved on
to WANS-FM in Anderson… then on to 20 years in radio and TV in
Savannah, GA, where she met her husband Bobby when he was stationed in
Ft. Stewart. They went on to have 5 children, 3 of whom are now Army
veterans themselves, with tours in Iraq and stateside to their credit.

The whole family moved back to Seneca in 1998, adding some family over
the years, including 12 grandchildren, so you’re bound to run in to one
of them on the disk golf course or just out and about town!
