Mary Beth's BIO
Although Mary Beth grew up in Detroit, it is Toledo that feels like home, especially since she and her husband, Terry, are raising their family here. Their children, Tara, Derek and Cullin were all born here and are all in school now. With grade school, high school and college tuitions all looming, it's no wonder Mary Beth looks forward to many more years working on 101.5 the River. "Miles to go before I sleep!"
Rick Woodell was born and raised in Macon, Georgia, attended the community college there and eventually the University of Georgia before embarking on a 38 year broadcasting career. Rick has worked in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Texas and been a part of the programming of radio stations in Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and California.
Before moving to Toledo, Rick was a highly rated morning show host in Greenville, South Carolina for 15 years and was co-host of "Talk of the Town," a 30 minute television travel show for Charter Communications that covered Georgia, North and South Carolina. Rick and his wife Carla moved to Toledo so he could rekindle his love for morning radio.
Rick and Carla have 4 "kids." One is Siamese...Cyan, 6 pounds of furry fury, Grayson, a loveable Gray stray from the Humane society, Frank a mini Dachshund rescue and the latest addition, Bill Blitzen, a rescued Greyhound.. Rick's son, Alex, graduated college in South Carolina and is continuing his education at the Medical College of South Carolina-Charleston.
Rick's continued love for charity work and civic pride keeps him active in the community.
"We've been here for over 7 years now. As Carla and I continue to travel the area, we're amazed at the eagerness of people to welcome us Southerners. We feel like actual Mid- westerners now! We really feel at home."
You're welcome very much:

RED KETTLE DONATIONS MATCHED $3 FOR $1 AT LOCAL ANDERSONS STORES ON DECEMBER 12, 13, 14
The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle campaign to raise funds for those in need in our community will get a huge boost on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Dec. 12, 13, 14) when donations made at local Andersons locations will be matched by The Andersons up to $150,000.
Every $1 deposited in a red kettle during this period at any of the three Andersons locations will be matched by $3 from The Andersons, Inc.
“In order to maximize this opportunity, Red Kettle collections need to reach $50,000 at The Andersons over these three days,” said Captain Kevin Zanders, who serves as the Area Coordinator of The Salvation Army in Northwest Ohio along with his wife, Captain Tawny Cowen-Zanders. “We are hoping that the community will recognize this opportunity and make an effort to donate on these days at these locations. Anyone who contributes should feel good about his or her part in generating increased revenue.”
Cowen-Zanders added, “It is our sincere hope that both donors and recipients join us in thanking The Andersons for their generosity. Their kindness will truly change lives.”
One of the challenges the organization faces this year is the loss of collection days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since Thanksgiving fell later, there are fewer days to collect the funds needed to meet community needs.
The money collected and the matched dollars will be used this Christmas season and throughout the coming year to bring hope to those in need throughout our community.
Captains Zanders and Cowen-Zanders are the Area Coordinators for The Salvation Army’s Northwest Ohio Area Services, which includes Lucas, Ottawa, Wood, Fulton, and Henry Counties.
It's an age old problem. We've been together for :
a) 2 days
b) 2 weeks
c) 2 years
d) 2 decades, etc.
So what is the perfect gift? It DOES depend on how long you have been together.
