While customers swore he made the best Big Mac they ever tasted Dave Rossi realized there was a higher professional calling for him…and that calling was radio.

He began his radio career working weekends at WIXV I-95 in Savannah, GA before moving on to 96 Wave in Charleston, SC, where he worked his way through the ranks eventually becoming Program Director. Within 3 years he lead 96 Wave to it’s highest ratings ever while winning Billboard Magazine’s coveted “Local Air Personality of the Year” award. Dave then took over the fledgling WRAX in Birmingham, Alabama and quickly made it the highest rated Alternative station in the country while winning the “Program Director of the Year” and “Radio Station of the Year” awards. When given the chance to program a radio station in Nashville,TN, which he describes as “the center of the music universe” Rossi jumped. That opportunity was made even better when asked to join the iHeartRadio Nashville team and program two stations, Classic Rock 105.9 the Rock and Alternative Alt 97 5In 2014 Dave married his wife Betsy during an intimate ceremony in Paris, France. The couple have 2 children together, Bebe and Louie.
