Meet Ellyn Davey - Music Director and 
co-host of Mornings with Brian & Ellyn

When I was young, I can remember hearing this well
deserved phrase from my mother more than once,
"Someday God may use that mouth for good, but right
now you need to shut it!"  The amazing thing is, my mom
was right! After studying Speech in college, I graduated
not knowing for sure where that degree would take me but
God had already prepared the path to use my "mouth" for
something good.  He did it and I give Him the glory! 

I feel so blessed to have been a part of this radio ministry
here at 90.7 Hope FM from almost the very beginning.

My life outside of the radio station includes my husband of
over 25 years, 2 kids, leading worship at my local church,
and whatever life brings with my very large, extended family. 
I drink coffee daily) and sing and laugh whenever I can!

Meet Heather Erbe - Host of Middays with Heather

Hi, I'm Heather and I love spending Middays with you on
90.7 Hope FM!  I am a born and raised Michigander and
am proud of it.  I found Jesus my Junior year of High School 
and have been striving to be more like Him everyday since. 

I've been married to my husband, Paul, for over 18 years.  
We have three kids (Alexandra, Sabastian, and Atticus). 

I found Christian music in High School but really fell in love 
with it when I heard Mark Stuart sing "Big House" in 1993! 
I am passionate about life and music and I hope to
encourage you every day!

Meet Brant Hansen - Host of The Brant Hansen Show

Brant is a toast-obsessed nerd who, when in high 
school, was no less than PRESIDENT of the Illinois 
Student Librarians Association.

He was also All-Conference in “Scholastic Bowl”, 
and lettered in basketball and football (both for 
keeping statistics) and was President of his own 
Stamp Collection Club, which consisted of himself. 

Brant spends his free time looking inappropriately 
intense. (He can’t help it.) He’s also a husband and dad, 
and he’s won multiple awards for his radio hosting skills.

Meet Brett Hager - Production Director
and Host of Sundays with Brett

I have grown up listening to Hope FM and Power 88.3
since before I can even remember.  Music has always
been a huge part of my life...there is rarely a time I'm
not listening to or playing music.  So I feel pretty blessed
to have landed here, where my two big passions meet,
my love for the Lord and my love for music.

Outside of music, I enjoy sports, all sports, and I will
play just about anything.  I love a nice competition.  I
also love watching movies, specifically Star Wars and
any Marvel movies. I made a lot of movie references but
people rarely catch them so I stopped pointing them out,
but I still find them funny!

Meet Lori McNaughton - Finance and Business Director

God had a funny and amazing way of directing my life to 
where I am now.  I was fresh out of college, sending out 
resumes and interviewing for jobs in my chosen field at 
the same time as a new little Christian Radio Station was
just starting to broadcast in Port Huron.  While I was 
waiting for God to open a door for me I started volunteering
at that new  station.  Little did I know, I had already walked
through the door to His plan for me.

I've watched God grow this ministry to two stations,  
90.7 Hope FM and Power 88.3.  I've seen God use music
and programs to change and save the lives, to restore
families and encourage people in this community and 
beyond.  I love my job, my co-workers and serving my
hometown and local communities.

In my off work time, I sing with 5 of the best women I know
in a group called "Rejoice" and I love to travel.  I've visited
all 50 states and over 30 countries world wide.

Meet Emma Whittredge - Community Engagement Coordinator
It's crazy how if you trust the journey, you can end up right
where you are supposed to be.  As a graduate of Indiana
Wesleyan University with a marketing degree, I did what
most young marketers do - jumped into corporate sales!
But after a whirlwind year of listening to God's nudge, my
husband and I found ourselves relocating back to Port
Huron.  Little did I know that in this relocation, doors would
open for me to truly pursue my passions at the coolest local
radio station.

I get the opportunity to combine my love of marketing,
relationship building and my faith on a daily basis --
while supporting the community I grew up spending so much
time in! 

In my free time, you can find me running around with my
Mini Schnauzer, Paddy, hanging at the beach, painting when
I have the chance, or on a weekend adventure with my Max :)


Meet Stacy Faulkner - Digital media and Promotions 

Wife, Mom, Sister, Daughter...Just a few of many hats 
I wear daily. During the week, I truly enjoy coordinating
incredible events and embracing partnerships in our
local community!

Proverbs 19:21 is pretty perfect for my faith journey
and the purpose God has for my life..."Many are the
plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose
that prevails."

I went from being a dental assistant for 8 years to a
career in radio.  Never saw that coming!  His plans are 
so much better than ours!  I love my job, I love the people
I work with and I love this community!  I don't know where
I would be today if a good friend had never introduced me
to positive music, which then lead to me finding the Lord!

I love spending time with family, shopping, napping and 
double stuffed Oreos!
