Kevin & Liz are back! 98.7 The Dove is proud to be the new home of the premiere local morning show in Springfield. The Kevin & Liz Show from 5am – 10am every weekday. Kevin & Liz have been waking up Springfield with fun & games for over 20 years. Plus, if there is a big community event happening you can bet Kevin & Liz will be part of it.
Kevin grew up in St. Pete, Florida, and Atlanta, Georgia, where he discovered the joy of radio in college. He got his first morning gig in Augusta, Georgia., then moved to Springfield in 1995. He’s been loving it ever since.
He’s excited to be reuniting with Liz Delany, his former partner from the “Kevin and Liz” show, a popular long running Springfield area radio program. Both absolutely LOVE what they do. “We are especially proud of our work in the community with the Ozarks Food Harvest, The Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks and so many others,” he says. “I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I guess you could say, I'm living the dream and I'm super excited to share my mornings with listeners on 98.7 The Dove.”
Kevin met his wife Kelly at a radio contest. “Obviously, I was the winner,” he jokes. Kelly's a Springfield girl and they've been married for 17 years and have two great kids “with attitudes.” Sam is in high school and Lilly is 12. The family loves the beach, Silver Dollar City and binge-watching TV shows. They also love hanging out with their dogs – Bam Bam, Snoop and Doc, a trio Kevin describes as “a handful.”
Born and raised in Kansas City, the Ozarks has been Liz’s home since 1994. Her husband, Sarge, who retired from the Air Force, was actually her high school sweetheart but they didn’t reconnect until their 25th high school reunion.
She and Sarge have four “fur” babies of the canine variety, which were rescued from various shelters. Their human baby, Buster, is all grown up and lives in Silicon Valley, California. “Family is always going to be the most important thing to me,” Liz says. “But I have many other passions. I believe in helping the most vulnerable in our community, like children and animals.” She’s also very passionate about mental health and changing the stigma that surrounds it.
Liz loves the outdoors and would much rather be fishing than stuck inside somewhere. “Fortunately, there’s plenty of fishing in the Ozarks!” she says. “There are also plenty of caring, compassionate and generous people and I can’t think of any place I’d rather be.”
