Tim Green

Tim Green is the co-host of the #QWakeUpCrew and can be heard on QMIX from 9 am to Noon. “I get to listen to music every day at work! How could I NOT love my job?!” His favorite part of the job is visiting various offices for the QMIX Office Party. Register for it now! Wait… read the rest of his bio, first. Then go and register! Tim is a pop culture fanatic, useless knowledge retainer, people-watcher, life-failer in remission that just happens to be borderline obsessed with Hollywood and is also long winded. He is still trying to find a film that lives up to his all-time favorite – “The Wizard of Oz.” You can follow the yellow brick road to him on Twitter : @Timmiejoe27! If Tim wasn't working on QMIX 107.3, his dream job would be a performer on Broadway – “I don’t need a leading role; just the funny side kick will do!”
