Joe Skare

Joe is a native of Minnesota having grown up in the Twin Cities but Nebraska is his adopted home. He’s lived here longer than anywhere else. After radio stops in Hastings and Grand Island, Joe started his Lincoln radio career in 1985, and the Capital City has been home ever since (with a year and a half in Oklahoma City…but let’s not talk about that!)

Joe is one of the biggest Minnesota Vikings fans on the planet and also follows the Twins, Wild, Wolves and University of Minnesota Gophers. It’s in his blood, BUT he’s also a huge Husker fan and has had the opportunity to be at several Husker Football Bowl games and National Championship Games. Many home football Saturdays you’ll find Joe hosting or attending B107.3 tailgate parties at the Embassy Suites! Go Big Red!

Away from the radio station, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids. Together they enjoy swimming, biking, camping, hiking and exploring our national parks! One of their biggest achievements is reaching the top of Colorado’s 14,259 ft. Long’s Peak mountain! Talk about a view!

Joe loves to play golf whenever he can and enjoys playing softball. He’s proud to be a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and has been a home brewer since 1992, brewing up his own beer, root beer, and the occasional cream soda. He’s also been playing the drums since the age of 10 and recently has been learning to play acoustic guitar.

In addition to hearing Joe on the air every morning, you may have heard him endorse these businesses: Tico’s Restaurant, Lincoln Electric System, People’s City Mission, A1 Cabinets & Granite, Pearle Vision, and Culligan Water Systems.
