"OJ" Scott Maxon

“OJ” Scott Maxon is originally from Upstate New York. He grew up on a third generation dairy farm about halfway between Rochester and Buffalo.

He shoveled a lot of snow until moving, with his family, to Sebring in the Autumn of 1982.

His first real job in Florida was as a busboy in the dining room at Harder Hall (served coffee to Pat Boone once. Nice guy. Not a great tipper.)

Scott was self-employed in the family auto parts business for 25 years before coming to the radio station as a part time board operator in January of 2008.

By September of that year he had become host of the Afternoon Drive on OJ 99.1, where he has been ever since. As of 2019 he became the OJ music programmer, where he's over seeing and making sure that your stations music is truly “Highland's Best Country”.

Of course, you can't work at OJ if you're not an animal lover. Scott and his wife Cindy have rescued dozens of dogs and cats over the years.

Country music has been the story of America for decades. Telling that story every day is OJ Scott's greatest passion and privilege.
