A look at the new home studio.
Welcome to the Official Doug Daniels Media page.
A look at the new home studio.
Finally making the plunge into the world of (not going to use the word podcasting, as so-called podcasting reaches around the world) internet BROADCASTING. Channels will be on Metaphysics and Spirituality; Ohio State and College Football; Rock-Pop-Soul and Country music and more. I know I should pick one and specialize in it for monetary purposes but we'll see. Another topic may be just on what I do best -- radio. Radio Personalitys rarely are interviewed on camera.
This equipment will also allow me to do commercial production; Voice Tracking stations and more.
For my radio friends, what home studio equipment do you recommend for professional voice tracking; podcasts and production?
Thanks in advance.
Been awhile since I've posted here. I have been working at a furniture store setting rookie records for writing new business. Still seeking a part-time/utility position with a local Central Ohio radio group. Use [email protected] to touch base.
Updated information. This platform works. Thank you!
The good news is...your prayers WORKED! WE'RE COMING HOME!! I have … Douglas Daniels-Holzmeier needs your support for The Holzmeier-Daniels Homecoming
Here are a few of the people I've worked with in and outside of radio and what they have to say about my character and competency:
Doug Daniels Holzmeier
The Late Dave Robinson/PD of WNCI/Columbus/B96 Chicago and CBS Market Manager in
Chicago and Orlando:
Doug – you are one of the most enlightened people I’ve ever known.
Daniel Caron/Original Play Programs
Doug Holzmeier is a delightful person I met in the mid-1990s through his radio program in Wheeling, WV. We met after I won a gift from a contest his station was running. I left the radio station that day with much more than my prize in hand.
It has been a pleasure getting to know Doug, the person behind the voice on morning radio.
From our first meeting it became clear that Doug’s interests involved so much more than his profession. You knew this about Doug listening to his morning show. Getting to know him personally only reinforced this fact.
Doug is passionate about his work, and he continually strives to better himself. I appreciate his kindness to me over the years, educating me about the broadcast and music industry. Our friendship continues even though we no longer live in the same community, with Doug residing on the other side of the country. Each time we talk, I reminisce about how
lucky I was to walk into his radio station so many years ago. I feel fortunate to call Doug, my friend.
Dr. George “Jeep” Naum/My primary physician and WKWK listener in the 1990s:
It is with honor and great pleasure to write a recommendation for Douglas Holzmeier.
First of all, I am jealous that he is not broadcasting in my state. The city of Wheeling, WV and the state of WV hasn’t recovered since he left. Radio just hasn’t been the same.
I have known Doug and his dear wife Denise for 30 years and I feel privileged to know them. Listening to Doug started off my day right. His talent as an air personality and programmer was obvious. His mix of music was amazing. He had a keen sense of what you wanted to hear. I don’t think I ever called requesting that a song be played because he always knew. That, my friend is a Gift.
He also always knew what to say when interacting with his listeners. His easy going style was attractive when he was describing a song or talking to a listener on the air. He cared. The love for his craft and the care for the product he created were unmistakable and greatly respected in our area.
Again, Doug CARES!! While in Wheeling, he made the community better. His interest in Easter Seals was well known. He and his wife Denise were key in helping the work of this vital organization. I have been humbled to know him as a dear friend. Indeed, I consider him a brother. He has been by my side for one of the most difficult times in my life and has been unwavering in his support. In a word he has been LIFE-GIVING.
Doug Holzmeier is a kind, compassionate, trustworthy and dear person. In short, he is a child of God. I give him my highest recommendation. You would be extraordinarily lucky to have him.
Major Steven Harmon/Childhood friend and neighbor:
I have known Doug nearly my entire life. The two of us grew up as next door neighbors from the time he was three and I was four years old. Doug’s character and reputation are above reproach. I believe growing up as closely as we did makes me well-qualified to testify to Doug’s integrity. Doug’s character, his solid values, and principles, were developed and ingrained in him by his parents. He has always possessed a strong sense of ethics and loyalty.
From the earliest years, radio was Doug’s passion. We all knew that he would end up with a future in radio. When he wasn’t playing sports with the rest of the neighborhood kids, you could usually find Doug engrossed in his records and listening to the local radio in Columbus, Ohio. He listened and practice the skills with zeal he would lead him into the radio industry.
In closing, I strongly believe Doug exhibits the stellar attributes which are the hallmarks of a strong leader. I highly recommend Doug for whatever you are considering him for.
Debbie Mills/WKWK Morning Show Partner in the 1990s:
"Doug is a true mentor, full of knowledge and inspiration. His personality and work style is both kind and firm. He knows how to get things done. As a leader he is compassionate and strong willed. Criticism and guidance is always directed with a kind manner. As a broadcaster he is respected by all who follow him. Doug has a kind heart and soul. Having worked side by side with Doug, I have the utmost respect."
"I’ve always been impressed with Doug’s passion and genuine interest in serving the community. He is thoughtful and innovative, which is demonstrated in his willingness to listen to others ideas, research and
gather appropriate information when needing to make decisions.” - Debi Farey/HR Expert and Former Church Board Associate
"Doug – you are one of the classiest people I’ve had the fortune to work with. In my 13 years in Reno, I never heard Magic 95.5 sound better than what you did, and it’s not even close. I hope we get to work together again.” – Michael Keeton, Traffic and Personality at Cumulus/Reno
Having known Mr. Doug Daniels for over twenty-five years, I feel qualified to unequivocally convey my
strong belief that he is a man of character, and am confident that he will be an excellent addition to your
Mr. Daniels is a man who combines both the highest level of character and talent.
He’s one of the most astute and detail-oriented radio programmers I know, and Doug goes way “above and beyond” to make sure the on-air product at his stations is perfect!

33 years ago this month I was living large performing 10a-2p at my dream station: WXGT 92X/Columbus Ohio.
I'm sure glad that this Grove City boy who grew up on WCOL in the 1970s and then Most Music 92X in the 80s... got to be a member of an exclusive club of Columbus CHR Royalty: Buddy Scott Chris Shebel; Gary Spears Dave Robinson Joe Dawson Monique Harris Dawson Doug Ritter; Suzy Waud; Joe Kelly Adam Cook; Mark Daniels; Pan Pam Rahal Jon Zellner; Kevin Haynes; Kelly Quinn Tom Kelly; Greg Jordan; Tony Coles and precious few others.
Listening to this aircheck, I'm as intrigued by how tight the sound was as anything else. You had to be PRESENT and ENGAGED. You were one with the music; imaging; promotions...it was glorious. You had to be there. And I was.
This is proof positive that in (nearly) another life-time I was a Hot Rockin', Hit Crackin', Flame Throwin' top 40 boss jock. Fun times in the late 1980s rig...
Audio of my Classic Hits Aircheck along with Alt 92 Reno Imaging.
My brands believe in Community Service.
The Marketing Video I created for my AC in Louisiana.
Possibly my most successful promotion started when I convinced B.E. Taylor to perform an annual Christmas Concert starting in 1995 in Wheeling. From 1995 to 2015 these Christmas shows entertained hundreds of thousands in over a dozen cities. Bill and I were friends. We lost him in 2016 after a nine year battle with a brain tumor.
Another Classic Hits Aircheck, this time from Rockford. Fun times.
Audio of me performing AM Drive Solo at Magic 95.5 in Reno.
In the 90s I programmed one of the most successful AC stations in America: WKWK FM/Lite Rock K97FM. This is my staff holding the Get Well Card our listeners signed for Gloria Estefan who had been injured in a bus accident. Left to right is my wife Denise Daniels; Dale Allen; future WTVN personality Joel Riley and yours truly.
Saw this at a gas station between Sacramento and Reno in the Sierra Mountains. Robin Williams was filming What Dreams May Come in 1997. He wrote this on the wall: "Scenery is here, wish I was beautiful".
I've performed Morning Drive Radio Shows with my wife in Reno; Tri Cities; Rockford; Wheeling and Pensacola. We're Married in the Morning.
I performed a Saturday Night Classic Hits show for more than twenty years. Here's a sample from KRFN Reno.
Welcome to my Radio Broadcasting page. This is where I will share thoughts; audio; pictures and stories from my career. .
Thanks for visiting.
