B 98.5 host Kelly Stevens proposes on air

Congrats Kelly and Katie!

Congrats Kelly and Katie!

B 98.5 FM host Kelly Stevens is still recovering following a head-on collision on 400 in which the wrong-way driver died.

The wreck left him seriously injured but thankful for every day, and aware of how short and fragile life is. So this week, with the help of his on-air companions Vikki Locke and Jessica Forkel - plus visiting “guest DJ” Monica Pearson, Stevens proposed to his girlfriend Katie Buser.

“Realizing that tomorrow is promised to no one and that life is way too short I decided to propose to Katie this morning…and thank God she said yes!” Stevens posted on his Facebook fan page. “Just wish it hadn’t taken a near death-experience to show me the way.”

Here’s a video clip in case you missed it!

Am I the only one that thinks doing this on air makes it more of a publicity stunt and less of a romantic gesture?

I’m sorry Kelly was in that wreck and everything, but the morning show is a MILLION times better without him.

WHY does everyone always have to hate or be negative to happy things in other’s lives. Go see a therapist. I AM VERY HAPPY FOR THE TWO OF YOU!!!

Congrats, nice story.
I do have one question. Is this the station that plays the real wussy music? I could have swore my dial said 96.1, but I know they actually play real music. I mean this music was real wimpy.

And there are people who wonder why radio is in decline. Stunts like this have to make the list.

OMG it was 96.1 playing the music preteen girls and wimps listen to. What a shame. Could they please at least change to 96.2 to save the honor of this once great station.

Congratulations to the both of you but if you want this to be a long and happy marriage, please wear your seatbelt while driving. It is stupid for someone not to wear their seatbelt, you might have walked away from the crash with less injuries!!

Stop about the seatbelt already, he got the message LOUD and clear and am sure they both will be wearing seatbelts. More importantly for their health, go walking together and eat less crap.
