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!

Southbound 95 Ducks

In case you missed the video circulating over the weekend, or you missed the news coverage, then you missed a really sweet story.

Our local firefighter heroes from Stafford and Quantico came to the rescue of a mother duck and her ducklings that we caught in I-95 traffic. The crews were leaving the scene of an accident when they stumbled upon the stranded fowl. The incident happened shortly after 7pm this past Friday night. Firefighters shut down 2 lanes of 95 South and walked over a mile to get the flock to safety.

Here is the video:
