WEEKDAYS 6:00am to 9:00am

Tug Cowart

I am Georgia born and raised, originally from Dalton, GA, but now I live in Alpharetta with my wife Laura and my son Jakob. My family and I are members of Perimeter Church in Johns Creek, and my son keeps me and my wife really busy playing sports. He focuses on baseball, with Georgia Jackets Baseball Club.

I served 4 years in the United States Navy and am a strong advocate and supporter of our men and women in uniform. I am very proud to be from the state of Georgia; how proud you ask? Well, when I was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida which had no state tax, I wouldn’t change my residence away from Georgia to save my self some money.

I have been in radio for 19 years with 11 years in Atlanta market. I started at a little station in my hometown of Dalton, GA. then on to Chattanooga, Tennessee before landing a job here in Atlanta. I did mornings and afternoons on Kicks 101.5 for a long time. My whole career I have always worked country radio, and still do, but have always wanted to cover sports more. You can always find me cheering for the Braves, Bulldogs, Falcons and Hawks. Having said that, I really do pull for all the teams from Georgia including Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, Kennesaw State. I love the Georgia Swarm, Atlanta Gladiators and Atlanta United as well!

Carlos Medina comes to XTRA 106.3FM from Dickey Broadcasting’s sister station 680 The Fan where Carlos has worked since 2004. While there, he was known as “Front Office Los” for his knowledge of team statistics, standings and finances. Building on that experience, Los brings his statistics skills and knowledge to The Morning XTRA where he’ll give you the numbers behind the biggest news stories in Georgia and America!
