Johnny Boswell, Owner
Radio and advertising has been my life other than spending two years in the US Army, including twenty months in Germany. Helping inform and entertain our audiences and helping businesses grow is what I do. I was fortunate to get on board the digital revolution early back in 1995. What I've learned primarily is that great marketing is mostly about creating the right message which can be delivered by a variety of media.
Melissa Boswell Townsend, General Manager
I was born and raised in the broadcast and advertising business. Growing up in the radio station, I developed a passion for this business. I received my bachelors degree in General Business Administration from Mississippi State University. For years, my focus has been on creating personalized marketing plans to help clients reach their current and potential customers through a blend of broadcast, digital, event, and outdoor media. I work for the advertisers of Boswell Media and look forward to meeting you.

Mina Mooney, Kicks 96 News Director / Graphic Designer
After earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Delta State University, I got my start in public relations, journalism and multi-media working for my hometown newspaper, The Clarksdale Press Register. My career-journey has taken me across the Southeast, with a few stops in several northern markets; handling marketing, public relations, and advertising in the corporate casino gaming industry. I was fortunate to find a ‘home’ at Boswell Media that was close to home so that I’m surrounded by family and friends. My mission as part of the Boswell Media News Team is to provide up to date news and information to the communities we serve.
