Wade first became interested in radio by winning radio contests when he was just 14. By 16, he was on the air. He is a veteran of mainstream CHR, AC, News/Talk and Oldies radio in his native Southern California, and his production has won two ADDY awards and five ADDY Certificates of Recognition. He was also a contributor to a Golden Mike award for earthquake coverage, and an Emmy-award winning CBS sports feature. And he's experienced in video and print work - everything from a doctor, lawyer, car salesman, and Ask Jeeves butler, to feature extra work in music videos and the original "Saved by the Bell."
After joining Salem, Wade served as Morning Show host from 1994-1999, during which time he met his future wife at, what else, an on-air remote. As Operations Manager, he continues to oversee much of the production, as well as his on-air duties. He also produces and co-hosts the weekly syndicated program, “The CCM Radio Magazine.” Wade married his beautiful wife Rachelle in April 1998. They have three sons, Matthew, Andrew and Jacob and one daughter, Anna
