Born and raised in Sallisaw, Greg is a 1987 graduate of Sallisaw High School. He is a single dad to Brendon and Kyleigh, and a step daughter, Whitley, who he considers one of his own. He loves spending time with his kids! He plays piano by ear, and has enjoyed this God-given talent since he was three years old. He loves country, pop, and classic rock music so the Mix was a PERFECT fit! He got his start in radio as a DJ when he was 16 at then local Sallisaw radio station KKID, then worked at several Fort Smith radio stations before leaving the radio business in the early to mid 90s to pursue a career in public service, which he retired from after 26 years. Since retiring, he found the desire to be in touch with the public through radio had never left him, and in September 2018 debuted his show, “Greg Copeland and The Evening Drive” on KXMX, The Mix 105.1 FM. He is a HUGE Oklahoma Sooner fan (but also roots for the OSU Cowboys when they’re not playing OU), and enjoys spending time at his lake retreat at Tenkiller Lake. Fall is definitely his favorite time of year, and he loves relaxing around a fire with family and friends. He loves to hear from you, the listeners, and can be heard Monday through Friday from 5:00pm to 11:00pm on The Mix!
