Join Robbie, John & Katie on air on WQIK every morning from 5AM through 10AM!
Robbie Rose has been on the radio in Jacksonville for over 25 years and is a hometown celebrity favorite. Listeners tune into Robbie to hear his interpretation of today’s headlines, advice, and to hear one of his many famous quotes. Robbie is simple, yet speaks to the heart of so many. He thoroughly enjoys his job in radio because he not only likes the music, but likes meeting people whether it be a listener, client, or country music stars. However, the listeners mean the world to Robbie and he credits much of his success to their allegiance to him.
When he's not on the air broadcasting with the “Big Show,” you can probably catch Robbie out on his jet ski.
I am a native Jacksonvillian and have been at WQIK for 26 years, playing Jacksonville’s new country! Outside of the fun I get to have as part of Jacksonville's Big Show, I love hanging out with my wife & family; cooking, walking the beach or catching a basketball game. My partial list of ‘doesn’t get better than this’: Friday nights at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville; late night drives down A1A in the summertime; Duane Allman playing slide guitar; Carrie Underwood singing “How Great Thou Art,” and making my wife smile.
When I’m not driving to and from Tallahassee for Seminoles games, I also enjoy writing songs, Bible studies, and I am publishing my book on music from Jacksonville.
Katie has been working in radio for a little over 6 years and has a passion for making connections with people in her community. Outside of being part of The Big Show and hanging out with Robbie & John every morning and having her show from 10am-3pm here on 99.1 WQIK, Katie enjoys finding new places to eat or exploring Jacksonville with her dog, Paisley. She's a firm believer than some of the best things in life are free. Sunrises, sunsets, the beach, and making memories with friends and family are what makes her feel whole.
You'll likely find Katie on the weekends hanging out at a beach bar enjoying some good food and good music!
