Mornings with the Traceys Comes to an End

Jeremy and Jill Tracey are ending their long run as a husband-wife morning show this week. Jeremy, who was recently promoted from PD to station manager at KGBI/Omaha (Life 100.7) will come off the air to focus on those duties, while Jill will move to afternoons teaming with Bruce Otto on The Afternoon Unwind 3-7pm. 

Jeremy and Jill first met at WRCM/Charlotte in January of 2000 and have worked together with a passion for people and God’s mission ever since. In 2008 they were given the opportunity to host Doing Life with the Tracey’s together in the afternoons at WCIC/Peoria. In 2011 The Traceys moved to the WCIC AM drive and began Mornings with Traceys. Then the two relocated to KGBI in July of 2019 to host mornings.

Jill says, “It was a dream come true for us, to live life together on the air and encourage listeners with a “normal” Christ-focused marriage relationship while still focusing on the regular fun and encouragement of drive-time radio. It’s been such an honor to do team radio together for the past 16 years. With Jeremy’s promotion to station manager at Life 100.7, it just isn’t practical for him to continue on air every day.

Starting Monday 7/15 Lindsay Martin and Nick Kalina (KGBI’s new PD and APD) will handle the early shift with That Morning Life from 6-10 am. Jill will move to The Afternoon Unwind with Bruce and Jill.

Jill adds, “I’ve known Bruce Otto and his wife Courtney ever since my first days in fulltime radio in 1995. Jeremy and I will still be on air together with the new Sunday Mornings with the Traceys from 8am to Noon, providing Jeremy with a way to connect with the listening family every week. We’re grateful for these opportunities and thankful for Northwestern Media for allowing us to pursue what we love: pointing people to Jesus and encouraging believers as we follow Him together!”
