On Air: 7pm – Midnight

Lani Ford is a twenty-year radio veteran who has moved from town to town, up and down the dial.  She started in country radio in Texas, was an airborne traffic reporter in Cincinnati, returned to San Antonio, Texas to work at an Oldies station, voiceover artist and actress.  Then, she moved to New York City where she worked for over 12 years as a DJ at legendary WPLJ while also reporting traffic for the NYC Fox affiliate and touring with her rock band, STARK.  Lani’s songwriting is what brought her to Music City in 2014.  She is thrilled to be on the air at Lightning 100 since February 2015.  You can hear her on weekends and when someone needs a vacation during the week.
