Home / Culture / WYOY – Y101


In the world of Top-40 radio, Y101 is one of the stations that stands out, and not just because it earned two Best of Jackson titles, Best Radio Personality and Best Radio Station, yet again. The company that owns Y101, The Radio People, has several stations throughout the South, but allows them some freedom to bring individuality to their programming.

“We want to be the iPod for the city of Jackson,” Y101 program director and morning-show host Carson Case says. “We want you to be listening to your favorite songs every time you get in the car.”

Case starts his day with co-hosts Chris Bender and Cami Marlowe on “The Morning Showgram with Carson and Bender.” By the time people tune in, they’ve been up for hours preparing for the show, and when the program is over, they begin prepping for the next day.

However, Bender says it doesn’t feel like work.

“We have a real passion for what we do,” he says. “This is a blessing.”

Both hosts credit the listeners for their success, saying that they help to move the show forward every morning.—Dawn Dugle
