Eddie Haskell

    Eddie Haskell joins 97.3 The Eagle On-Air Weekdays from 3-7pm.

    I grew up in Shawnee, Oklahoma just 61 miles from Joe Exotic. I never visited his zoo or adopted the mullet, unlike fellow Okies Toby Keith and Blake Shelton. However, by the time the stay-at-home order is lifted I will be SIX MONTHS without a haircut. So I can’t promise I won’t have Joe’s style by then!

    As a kid I was fascinated by the radio and got my first on-air job while I was in high school. And it’s all I’ve ever done (read: I have no other marketable skills!) This isn’t my first Virginia experience; I was on the radio at K92 in Roanoke in the late 80s and 90s. So any of you transplants may be going “is it that guy?” Yup, it’s me. Just older. With longer hair. 

    I look forward to spending the last (best) part of your workday with you and seeing you around. Once we’re allowed to leave the house!
