Harilyn “Cap’n H” Macosko joined WCTL in 2006 and has held several key positions, working in sales, hosting Cereal for Supper on Saturday nights, being on the morning show and serving as Promotions Director. A native of Lillington, NC, Harilyn received an undergraduate degree in communications from Gardner-Webb University and a master’s degree in communications from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. She is married to Paul Macosko aka Paulyj, and the couple have two kids, Riley & Beckett. Before beginning her radio career, Harilyn worked as a waitress, hostess, fast food server, lifeguard, swim instructor, TV talent, and other roles.
She explains her passion for radio: “I have always wanted to do radio. I LOVE talking, and radio lets me talk to so many people, and no one at the same time. I love being able to encourage, and ‘hang out’ with people exactly where they are (literately & figuratively).” Harilyn is heard weeknights from 6-9 PM.
