Kim Swinny


On air Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. to noon


Kim is North Carolina born and bred. She started off in Greensboro, went to Raleigh for college (St. Mary’s, NC State), stayed there a while and finally got smart and headed to the beach. She has been in Wilmington for almost 25 years and is here to stay.


Music has always been her first love and when she found The Penguin she thought it was too good to be true. While commuting to Myrtle Beach for her Masters in Counseling she discovered the station in its infancy and couldn’t believe her ears. She has now been part of The Penguin for more than 15 years offering the best therapy there is…GREAT music! You can catch her on air weekdays from 7 a.m. to noon. Hope you dig it!

Eric Miller

On air Monday – Friday, noon to 3 p.m.

Eric Miller has music in his bones. The front man for L Shape Lot (Encore Magazine‘s 2015 “Wilmington Band of the Year”) has vast experience performing and entertaining music lovers all over the southeast.  As a full-time working musician for the last 14 years, Eric is constantly exposed to new music. Becoming part of the Penguin (Encore’s “Best Radio Station” every year since 2004) made perfect sense when the opportunity presented itself.  He’s always finding new sounds from around the country for our listeners’ ears. Miller’s most proud of his activity in the local music scene, as it helps him to bring more local music to the locals.  His personal lifelong love of all music became life saving when he was diagnosed with cancer.  He credits music for making him a cancer survivor. When he’s not in the igloo, you’ll find him out playing gigs around town, surfing or getting some exercise on his bike.
