Valentine is a loving husband of 13 years to his wife Leilani and an adoring father to his young son Colin. Val started in the radio industry when he was 15 and has since become a household name in the business. Each morning, you can hear Val telling stories of being a first-time dad while sharing tales of his everyday life (just ask him why his underwear ended up in the backyard).
Outside of his home life, Valentine is a USO entertainer with over ten tours; including Bosnia and the Persian Gulf. Val has also been a regular performer at comedy clubs and is a former police officer (and no, that isn't just part of his routine).
Valentine loves to travel. His passport reads like James Bond's: from Paris to Hungary, Lichtenstein, Germany and many more. An avid coffee lover, the strongest coffee he ever tasted was while sitting in Budapest (where he says the coffee flows like motor oil).
Since birth, Val has been a diehard Boston Red Sox fan and enjoys spending time with his dog Lucy, whom he adopted from New Leash on Life (an organization that helps save pet orphans). On top of touring throughout Europe while playing in a jazz band, he's flown the U.S. Navy F-18 Hornet and skydived (unrelated events)!
Valentine's most important on-air attribute is his desire to be open with his listeners and to share his real life, thereby allowing the listener to share theirs as well.
Young, friendly, outgoing and family oriented, Jillian is the pop culture princess of Valentine in the Morning. She began her radio career at a young age and has been with Valentine for over 6 years! Starting at the age of 3, she trained with a ballet company and also studied everything from hip-hop to tap to Hawaiian dance!
She spends her weekends spending time with her family and date nights with her boyfriend (while waiting for that engagement ring). Jill is the oldest of 3 sisters and very girly. She loves everything fashion and beauty related. It also helps that her sister is a fashion stylist so she can keep up with the latest trends.
Jillian is heavily involved with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in helping find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and participates in Walk MS every year.
From oldies to new music, her favorite artists range from Michael Jackson to Maroon 5, and she also LOVES country music. She has a huge collection of CDs from the late 90s and early 00s, and considers Britney Spears one of her all-time favorites.
Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Nate Marino is the wise-cracking, fun-loving guy you hear putting Valentine in his place every morning! Originally set to be a doctor, Nate took a radio internship and decided to go a completely different route. Since graduating from Penn State, he has worked with many of the biggest names in the business.
As the sole single male on the show, Nate is still looking for Miss Right (or "Mrs." if the divorce isn't finalized). While taking a ribbing from his co-workers, Nate keeps the show focused and on time. On top of keeping the show in line, Nate knows a thing or two about "manly" stuff: he can drive a semi, has his motorcycle license and is even a dead-eye with a rifle; he claims it's the Pennsylvanian in him.
He loves traveling with his next destinations being Australia and Africa. Aside from the ever-present Mix music, he loves Christopher Cross and Rascal Flatts. Nate also enjoys sports too, especially when his hard-luck Detroit teams are playing.
Outside of work, Nate has dabbled in stand-up comedy and considers himself to be a laidback guy. In his downtime, he loves to be outdoors; anything from biking to hiking to his latest endeavor SCUBA diving. Nate would like to eventually get his masters degree and continue laughing each day with his Valentine In the Morning family!
