Troy Michaels


Troy has been with WIN 98.5 on and off since the early 90s. He began his radio career in 1983 and has worked at stations in both Indiana and Florida.

Off the air, which is more than on the air these days, Troy pursues other interests including photography, golf, fishing and art. Musically, he enjoys a variety of styles and prides himself in being one of Jimmy Buffett's Parrotheads, though we're not sure if it's because of a fondness for Jimmy's music or a fondness for Margaritas. Troy is also a big movie fan and enjoys those silly 80s comedies like Sixteen Candles, Uncle Buck and Caddyshack, and loves to read Michael Connelly and his Harry Bosch novels. Other than the opportunity to do an occasional air-shift at WIN 98.5, Troy often ponders what more anyone could possibly want out of life. Well, he has mentioned that new TaylorMade driver...

"I couldn't believe the seats we got at Comerica Park in Detroit! Fortunately, the weather was really nice the day after Christmas."

"When I'm not playing Your Country, I like to get out the pencils and draw. Here's a charcoal work of mine. Alright, did you even notice the camera's around her neck?"

"I guess I've been a radio guy for a lot longer than I thought. I think this is a publicity still from my first gig."

"Photography is another hobby of mine and some of my favorite subjects are urban scenes and railroads. Here's a shot from downtown Battle Creek."
