Brian Wilson has spent 25 years in the Washington market – serving as an anchor & reporter at Fox 5 for a dozen years, and then joining Fox News Channel, in its early days, in 1998. Brian covered the Clinton White House and Congress, replaced Tony Snow as anchor of "Weekend Live" and was a frequent fill-in for Brit Hume’s "Special Report." He left FNC last Fall, as Senior Correspondent and formed Right Tone Communications, a media coaching firm.
Larry O’Connor, talk host and Editor-In-Chief of the Breitbart.tv website, joins Brian Wilson as co-host of Cumulus News/Talk WMAL/Washington’s morning program, "Mornings On The Mall." O’Connor, who has regularly guest-hosted the nationally-syndicated "Dennis Miller Show" as well as programs on WMAL, WABC and WOR/New York, WPHT/Philadelphia, and WLS/Chicago (among others), began his talk radio career by creating the highest-rated nightly news show on Blog Talk Radio.
Traffic on the Fives: Keeping a close eye on the WMAL Jam Cams, Jamee Whitten brings a warm and light touch to the daily grind of Washington commuting.
Jamee's radio career began as a sophomore reporting news for her college radio station U-92 FM of West Virginia University. After graduation she landed a job on Capitol Hill working for Roll Call, "The Newspaper of Congress" -- but the radio bug was ringing in her ear, and soon she was playing country music at AM 1460 in Manassas, Va. Jamee then moved on to Lite Rock 94.3 FM, and then to voice-overs, industrial videos and television commercials.
In 1996, Jamee joined Shadow Traffic as a part-time weekend traffic reporter, and less than a year later was working full-time exclusively for WMAL.
In her spare time, Jamee much prefers activities by foot than by auto. Hiking, biking and tennis are tops on her list.
