Discovered by a local radio executive in his hometown of Canyon, Texas, Blair Garner has been on the
radio waves since age 17. Working on local radio stations all through college, Garner quickly climbed the
ranks as his voice caught the ear of program directors from many major markets. He quickly found
himself working for legendary stations in Washington, D.C., New York City, Houston and Los Angeles.
It was in the early 1990’s, though, that Garner found his niche – late-night radio. He found that the
demand for third-shift disc jockeys was high across the country and set out to fix that problem. Garner
planned for two long years before After MidNite ever hit the airwaves. It quickly became a fast-growing
syndicated country radio show with over 100 affiliates picking it up in the first year.
After waking up America as part of America’s Morning Show for three years, Blair is back to his niche –
late-night radio with the Blair Garner Show.
Garner credits his drive and success to the unwavering support from his parents growing up. “Every day
they would tell me to ‘work hard and be kind,’” says Garner, “and even today, when I tuck my kids in at
night, I say the same to them. That’s how important I think it is.” With over 30 years in the business Blair
has definitely done those two things. As proof, he has been hailed three times from the Academy of
Country Music as their “National Radio Personality of the Year.” He’s also been nominated for the
prestigious Marconi Award in broadcasting and not to mention the invaluable adoration of country
music’s biggest stars. In 2013, he was inducted to the National Radio Hall of Fame.
