Hannah Adkisson is a mid-Missouri native originally from Centralia, Missouri, who since high school has been interested in social and political interest topics. What started out as a simple request for Branden Rathert to be a speaker in her high school journalism class started a relationship that fueled a passion. Later as a high school senior, she returned the favor and was a guest speaker on a panel discussion for The Eagle, an opportunity on which she launched a career.
In college, she pursued a part-time job at the Eagle, which soon became full-time. It wasn’t long before her talent, perspective and professionalism propelled her to a quick promotion into the role of Producer of “Wake Up mid-Missouri!” Her favorite part of her radio career is the connection she builds with her audience; The Wake-Up mid-Missouri Family.
When she’s not working, Hannah follows Mizzou women’s volleyball and basketball, photography, music, and crafting. She’s even been working on her mastery of the acoustic guitar. Hannah is extremely passionate about supporting mid-Missouri business. Small-town Missouri is where her roots are, and for that reason, she loves seeing local businesses succeed and doing everything she can to help make that happen.

Now, he’s proud to bring his unique style to mid-Missouri, with the addition of a weekday drive time program on the Zimmer Radio Network. His non-negotiable broadcast principles are truth-seeking and calling out politically correct absurdity at every opportunity…all with a wink of humor and big nod to America’s First Principles and traditional values.
A father of three and husband of 40 years, Dr. Tobler is grateful to his wife, Heliene, and children Sean, Shannon, and Samantha for sustaining him through the trials of a serious illness in 1997.
