David “DJ No Sleep” WendtGrowing up in the Motor City, Detroit Michigan, I developed my love for the big city early on. I also spent some time as a Hoosier as well, where I earned my B.A. in communications from Indiana University. My hobbies are gaming, going fast, music, and photography. Radio has been a huge part of my life since I was a young child, where I would actively listen to the hottest DJs around and wait for my shot! Now Panama City can catch me on weekdays from 2-7pm on Island 106!

Favorite Movie: Father of the Bride part 1 and 2, Paranormal Activity 1, 2, not 3 and 4, The Purge and Four Christmases. I love scary movies!

Favorite time of year: I love the Fall/Winter seasons. I’m thick, so jeans and sweatshirts are my friends. I’m not built for hot weather.
What I Watch: Anything on Bravo. I could watch Real Housewives of NYC, OC and Jersey All Day! I’m in my 30’s and still keep up with those Teen Moms!
When I’m not on WILN: I love to shop, family time and kick back with some wine and cheese!
Extras: I love that my co-workers feel like a second family. It makes going to work something that I look forward to doing every day at 4 AM! JJ and I have been doing the show for 10 years and I love how every day is different. From the people that we talk with to the topics we choose. There’s never a dull moment.
Meet JJ (otherwise known as “hey dip$#!t”):
I’m originally from a small town you’ve never heard of in Minnesota. It was basically Prince and I there…for real. I get mistaken for Ice Cube all the time…he’s not happy about it. I play the hits and make advances on hot moms. My parents are so pleased. Spend over $100k on college, get kicked out of law school and you can do this too! Honestly though, I am STOKED to be back on the air in Panama City! THANK YOU for making me feel welcome!!! Call the show and hit me up on socials, I’d love to hear what you think and what I can play to make your night better!!!
