Cincinnati native Brian Douglas has been on air with Q for 25 years, living out the dream he’s had for as long as he can remember – to live in his hometown and “work at one of the greatest radio stations in America!” When he’s in the studio, his MacBook Pro, iPad and iPhone are never far away, and neither is his amazing partner Laura Powell!
Brian’s three kids are the loves of his life, although his involvement with charities and organizations like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, WAVE Foundation and many others is close behind. Laura agrees – “The Light The Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society makes me cry every year,” she says. She and Brian both cite The Q102 Bosom Ball for Breast Cancer as one of their favorite station events and a great display of unity.
When she’s not in the studio, you’ll find Laura spending time at her local Kroger, T.J. Maxx and Kohl’s, and of course enjoying her beautiful family. Brian is an avid photographer, a certified scuba diver and loves heading down to The Banks for all the excitement happening at The Holy Grail, Crave, Moerlein Lager House and more!
