Braden Smith



Ramblin's from the guy you hear on the radio!

Hey it's Braden, catch up with me weekday afternoons from 3pm-7pm. We'll talk country music, country people, life in Fredericksburg, fun stuff, traffic, and weather. Plus I always have tons of FREE stuff to giveaway. See you then!

A little about me... I grew up in Maryland, so bring on the crab cakes and football anytime! GO RAVENS! I started in broadcasting when I was in high school. But I didn't start out in radio... my first broadcasting job was as a weatherman on a local cable station. I spent almost 5 years bouncing around to a couple tv stations, and it eventually landed me in Fredericksburg. I was even offered a job one time at a CBS station! I always had a passion for weather, so it was a great career for me. I was one of the National Weather Service's youngest weather spotters and members of their Storm Survey Team. I studied Broadcast Meterology at Mississippi State University. So how did I get into radio? I started working part-time at Thunder 104.5 on the weekends when I moved to Fredericksburg. When I had a chance to make it a full-time career, I couldn't pass it up! My radio journey has been more fun than I ever imagined. And I have had the chance to do some amazing things and meet some amazing people. And it only keeps getting better!

An ABC reporter went from reporting the news to being the news! Josh Taylor was working on a story about rental fraud for WWSB in Florida. But when he tried to confront a woman at a property in Siesta Key, she ended up stealing his car! When the woman, later identified as Jean Price, first spotted Taylor, she ran outside and tried to grab his camera. She demanded he leave, and when he refused, she hopped in his car and drove away! The whole thing was caught on tape and Price was charged with grand theft auto. Guess you can say she really stole the show! By the way, the media is allowed on public streets.

Here they are, the most popular commercials from the 2014 Super Bowl. Needless to say, some turned out better than others. But none-the-less, still some awesome ones in there.

Football has a bit of a different meaning across the pond, but what would it sound like on TV if Brittish commentators called an American NFL game? I have a sneak peek for you:
