Blake is a co-host of X107.1’s Blake & Erin in The Morning, powered by Logic: Your Life Connected, and X107.1’s Programming Director. Hailing from Chicago, with radio stops in Washington, DC and Tucson, Arizona, Blake comes from a family that has been in the music industry for many years. Music has always been a part of his life since learning to play drums at a very early age. In addition, his grandmother worked for a radio station where he spent many hours as a kid. He was influenced by his uncle who has managed Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Hootie & the Blowfish, and KISS, to name a few. Blake became a DJ for hire as a teenager, before getting an early start in radio. One of his most memorable events happened while working in Washington, DC during 9/11 – when Blake reported live from near the Pentagon for a number of radio stations around the United States. Other career highlights include recording and mixing acoustic performances for artists like Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow, The Fray and Alanis Morrisette. He has also interviewed celebrated artists such as Chris Martin (Coldplay), Adam Clayton (U2), Maroon 5, Jack Johnson and Sarah McLachlan.
Erin is a co-host of X107.1’s Blake & Erin in The Morning, powered by Logic: Your Life Connected. Erin calls Idaho Falls home, but has also lived and worked in Los Angeles and New York City. She has been in the music industry for more than 10 years managing bands, producing events for multiple organizations, including TBS and YouthAIDS, and hosting radio shows. Erin grew up listening to The Beatles, Michael Jackson and Elton John; there is also a strong possibility she is John Lennon reincarnated, sans talent. She played just about every instrument until finally realizing she’s better left leaving it to the pros. Music has always been the soundtrack to Erin’s everyday activities – whether it’s snowboarding in the winter, or long boarding in the summer. Erin is very active and loves to play soccer, supporting Roma and Italia. During her storied career, Erin has interviewed David Cook, 3OH!3, Adam Corolla and Paramore to name a few.
