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!

People love to move around during the fall, whether it to go to a local orchard to pick apples, to visit a corn maze, to leaf peep, or whatever it is you enjoy during this time of year.

Cell phones...what would we do without them? We'd probably be lost right? But could you do without the ugly towers that seem to be popping up all over? I notice it every day as I head to Levant from Bangor, you see beautiful scenery...with one very tall, very ugly cell tower standing high above all the trees! Well, with as many visitors as Acadia National Park sees every year, and the fact that cell service is very scattered in the park, they have approved a new cell tower to be installed, and if you're not careful...you may never even notice it's there...watch!
