Episode 43: Jessica Bessette a.k.a. Bess Jess

Jessica Bessette a.k.a. Bess Jess from WFAV 95.1 FM and River Country 101.7 FM, 103.7 FM, and 96.1 FM.

Last week, we ran a “Nominate A Guest” contest. Listeners were invited to nominate a person, place, or topic in Kankakee County for our 1 Year Anniversary livestream on Tuesday, May 10th. We took all of your nominations, shuffled them up, and randomly selected one. The nomination who was chosen was Jessica Bessette, better known as Bess Jess on WFAV 95.1 FM and River Country 101.7 FM, 103.7 FM, and 96.1 FM! This ended up being kind of a reunion episode. Bess Jess & I hosted the Wake N’ Jake Morning Show together on WFAV from 2017 to 2021.  

Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest and to Bess Jess for agreeing to be our mystery guest.
