Afternoon Fishin' with John Nolan weekdays, 2pm - 7pm
John Nolan was born in Boston and raised in chilly New England where he played hockey, skied and shoveled snowy neighborhood driveways. He says his Irish/Italian upbringing was always filled with laughter and a lot of spaghetti! Nolan attended Catholic school and went off to a state college in Vermont to study mass communications transferring to complete his love of broadcasting back in Boston. There he landed an internship on the top morning show writing and singing parody songs, a few stints as a stand-up comedian and waiting on tables in Faneuil Hall.
From his work in Boston, Nolan found a new home in Washington, D.C., in the morning again on the top station. “The Nations Capital proved to be a wonderful place to raise my two girls, so while my wife taught at a Virginia Christian School, I became a Washington radio news guy in the middle of the strange DC press corps”. In addition to the busy family activities most weekends, Nolan completed two Marine Corps Marathons for the MS Society and five annual three hundred mile bike rides to raise awareness and funds for those living with HIV/Aids.
Several years ago, Nolan accepted a morning show host position in San Diego and made the cross county trek with his wife and four legged kids, a dog and cat. “Southern California is the most wonderful place to live," laughed Nolan, "I feel like I've landed on my planet!”
Now each afternoon on The Fish, Nolan says he's excited to spread the love, laughter and encouragement he has been blessed with while creating lasting friendships with the staff and everyone listening each day!
