I’m JB Love and I’m proud to say I’m a Rockford original, born and raised. I look forward to spending my mornings with country music fans every day. Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like a compulsive need to be liked. Like my need to be praised. When I’m not at Q98.5 you can spot my family and I at places like Rockford City Market, at whichever festival might be happening, a concert, or grabbing a bite anywhere that entices our taste buds. Also, don’t be surprised if you spot me at a wedding from time-to-time. Other than that, I’m not too exciting. A lot of time is spent at home with my wife Brittany, the kids and our dog, Frank. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee.
