JR Mitchell

I am the morning host and brand manager at Q-106.5, a two-time CMA Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year and one-time ACM Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year. When not behind a mic on-air, you can find me DJing events all over Maine and also singing some of the songs you love to listen to on the radio. I was the male vocalist & Entertainer of the Year in both the Pine Tree State Country Music Association & DECMA (Downeast Country Music Association.) I can also be called a geek. If it's electronic -- from computers to the latest tablet to the most recent high-tech phone on the market -- I geek out on all of the above, but not too much of a geek that I don't LOVE sports! Football, baseball, hockey & NASCAR are just a few of my favorites. I have a soft spot in my heart for The Pine Tree Camp for Children and Adults with Disabilities and I love the Q-106.5 Pine Tree Camp Egg Ride for this reason. Family, community service, and music keeps JR sane ... well, as sane as a 'Breakfast Flake' can be!
