Val started working at WRRV back in 2005, and after a short hiatus doing radio elsewhere, she has been back and hosting the midday show since 2018. Val loves to take a deep dive into all things alternative rock related, especially when it comes to the '90's and 2000s, hence her love for the WRRV Throwback at 12 (Monday - Saturday 12pm-1pm). Always down for a show, Val loves to catch her favorite bands (Shinedown, Pearl Jam, AJR, Coldplay) on tour, and is always up for experiencing new artists live. Val is a Hudson Valley native, and when she isn't at the radio station, is usually on some sort of adventure with her 8 year old daughter.
