How do we do it? Here’s the team …

Team Member - Joe DiBiase - Host

Joe DiBiase – Host

Joe keeps his finger on the pulse of the area and is the host of “Local Pulse.” Ever since dabbling in radio in college, Joe has had the radio “bug.”  In the summer of 2013, the idea for “Local Pulse” was born, and since it’s first broadcast has been gaining popularity, relevance, and listeners ever since.


Team Member - Gregg Ogden - ProducerGregg Ogden – Producer

Gregg books music guests, presses the buttons, and makes certain that the show runs on time. His “Gripe of the Week” is a favorite of listeners. A long-time friend of Joe’s, Gregg offered to be the “Local Pulse” producer until Joe could find a permanent producer, and he’s never looked back.


Isabel Indresano – Intern

Isabel is a journalism major at Emerson College. When she’s not confirming guest appearances or scrambling before air-time, she’s generally making Joe and Gregg’s jobs easier in any number of ways. She also fills in as producer when the need arises.
