Hey I’m Joey Walker from MOViN 100.3/96.5. I’ve lived in Syracuse all my life and love it here! Growing up I always had a love for radio and attended Onondaga Community College for Electronic Media Broadcasting. In Spring ’07 I joined MOViN as an intern which eventually lead me to my current positon…being on-air is a dream come true! A few years ago I was nominated in The NewTimes’ “Best of Syracuse Reader’s Poll” for “Best Radio Personality” and “Media Personality in Need of a Makeover”. Syracusans voted…and yes I won! O.K., so it was for needing a makeover, which I did get! When not on-air, you can find me playing the guitar and watcing sports…I’m a huge Boston Red Sox’s fan! I also enjoy hangin out at local clubs and bars around CNY and meeting different people! I aslo spend alot of time at home with my amazing wife Tiffany. Listen to me weekdays on MOViN 100.3/96.5 from 6am-10am w/ my crazy partner Heather Daley! We are a perfect match in the morning and we will def make your morning very.....lets say hmmm "interesting."
Hi there… I started out my radio career while attending SUNY Brockport, at a station in Rochester, WPXY. I began as an intern for both the morning show and in promotions. Eventually got a paid postion within the promotions department and has been my forte ever since. When I moved back to Syracuse, I not only worked in radio around town but also decided to take classes at Bryant & Stratton to further my web skills and graphic design. I came over to MOViN in January of 2007 to do a number of things within the office but left in ’08 to explore other opportunities. But when the opportunity arose to come back and do the morning show and promotions, I couldn’t say no. I started with Skip, and now I'm with Crazy Joey. I absolutely LOVE what I’m doing and love working with Joey who not only is a great mentor but an awesome friend (and shall I say “work companion”)… Together we make a great team!
Some of my favs: 80′s hair bands, laughing, margaritas, pictures, SU
bball, camping, rainbow cookies, jet skiing, Blue Moon with an orange slice, cliches & catchphrases, singing in cars, live music, Home Network tv, water no lemon, road trips, reality shows, movie quoting, fishing, new recipes, dancing, puppies (but I can’t leave out my lovely cat Julius), rollercoasters, shopping, and of course my friends, family and BF… and did I mention I’m one heck of a DERBY GIRL!

So we told you this morning.... You know you're from Syracuse when:
1.) You are an SU fan even if you've never gone to school there.
2.) Snow in May is a common occurrence...in fact, it's sometimes expected.
3.) The Carousel Mall is by far the best mall in all of Upstate NY...no ifs, ands, or buts.
4.) You look forward to Skippy's ice cream every summer
5.) You have been bombarded with HUGEEEE commercials for years
6.) You went to the Erie Canal museum for field trips in elementary school.
7.) You have a great time at the New York State Fair every year riding the rides, eating the junk food, getting "real" milk from the dairy building, and waiting in extremely long lines for parking.
8.) You remember when Shoppingtown was such a cool place to go without parents when you were a teenager
9.) You wonder when Destiny USA will ever be finished and how much will it REALLY help the economy?
10.) Coleman's is the hot spot on St. Patrick's Day because of the green beer they serve that day.
11.) You know never to swim in Onondaga Lake
12.) You never really appreciated Lights on the Lake until, ironically, you were older.
13.) Parking in downtown is a disaster but once you find a spot it's totally worth it for all of the cool restaurants and stores.
14.) You have walked across the freezing cold quad during a blizzard just to see a SU basketball game.
15.) No matter who you are, or what part of Syracuse or the surrounding areas you are from, if you see someone sporting a Syracuse shirt or hat you already like them.
16.) You've become accustomed to shoveling snow late at night to avoid getting snowed in the next morning.
17.) You've mentioned that Richard Gere and Alec Baldwin are both from Syracuse.
18.) You've spent many a Saturday at the Farmer's Market getting fresh fruits and veggies.
19.) You remember when CompUSA was in the basement of Carousel along with Kahunaville.

Shape-Ups are a Sham!
News flash: you can't work out by not working out. As predicted, the Federal Trade Commission has settled with shoemaker Skechers over claims that their rounded-bottom Shape-Up shoes helped wearers to tone their lower-body muscles and lose weight.
According to the FTC, there were a few problems: first, the studies didn't prove what the good doctor claimed, he just happens to be the spouse of a Skechers marketing executive, and the company paid for that not-so-independent study.
In the future, Skechers can't make claims about any of the following in their athletic shoe ads unless they're backed up with actual research:
claims about strengthening;
claims about weight loss; and
claims about any other health or fitness-related benefits from toning shoes, including claims regarding caloric expenditure, calorie burn, blood circulation, aerobic conditioning, muscle tone, and muscle activation
