Joey McLaughlin

Joey McLaughlin is one of those people who caught the radio “bug” early on and was never quite able to shake it.

After taking on a few different ventures in the past few years, while keeping some radio work part time, we’re thrilled he’s back at Capitol Radio Group full time as the host of the WTAX Morning Newswatch.

Joey, his wife Michelle and their three children live in Springfield.
