The Host
Atlanta radio listeners have been tuning in to hear the commentary and humor of Eric Von Haessler for nearly 20 years. He co-founded 'The Regular Guys' show in Los Angeles in 1995 before bringing that show to the ATL and 96 Rock in 1998. 'The Regular Guys' show quickly became a ratings juggernaut and genuine Atlanta radio institution.  After running afoul of the FCC and political correctness one too many times the show left 96 Rock and was revived on Rock 100.5 from 2008 to 2013. Through it all Haessler continued to please audiences as the steadfast Libertarian with an open mind, and the driver of the daily 'News Jog' segment. Eric was—by his own account—the worst stand-up comedian of the roaring 80’s. He began his radio career by producing a Top 40 morning show in the early 90's in Western N.Y. and quickly knew he had found a home for his talents. Radio hasn't been able to get rid of him since. Now Eric is on-air with ‘The Von Haessler Doctrine’, live on News 95.5 and AM 750 WSB. He also creates three shows per week (The Digital Doctrine) that are available only on the WSB Radio app. Von Haessler:  'After leaving The Regular Guys in 2013, I wanted to be smart about choosing my next radio show. I didn't want to do anything without creative control. I've seen too many friends leave a successful show and disappoint themselves and their fans by jumping on to somebody else's idea of good radio. WSB is obviously the best radio station in town and it's just my good fortune that they trust me to do the show I want to do.” 'Think of 'The Von Haessler Doctrine' as -The World According to Eric”, says Von Haessler, “I'm sick and tired of self-righteous people yelling past one another and calling it political debate. I've had enough of political tribes that continually look to undermine one another and call it good governance. It's time to start acting like adults again. Enough of the whining and moaning. It's time to get back to work. It's time to build. That's 'The Von Haessler Doctrine.'' 'In some ways I think of it as a comedy show that tackles serious issues. That can get a bit messy at times… but why not get messy? It's fun!'  - Eric Von Haessler. Email the show at vonhaesslerdoctrine@wsbradio.com.

Autumn met Eric Von Haessler, and her fellow Doctrinaires, while interning for The Regular Guys Show. Eventually, being the friendly hard worker she is, she started working for the promotions department and soon started doing some local and national commercial spots and jingles. She was also given the opportunity to have a radio show with the prestigious time slot of 2am-6am. Autumn worked with Eric on various projects before returning to college to earn her bachelor's degree in Linguistics, concentrating on teaching English as a second language and learning American Sign Language. These skills are proving to be very helpful for her career in radio. After teaching for a year or two, Eric offered her a spot on his podcast which did pretty well, as far as podcasts go, catching the attention of WSB radio. I'm sure Eric's many years in radio had nothing to do with it. Autumn has listened to WSB since she was in Kindergarten. She literally used to have WSB set as the station to wake her up in the morning to go to school. They used to have a 'typical' type of morning radio show. Did you know that? Autumn did...(when she was five). Autumn couldn't be more proud to be a part of a radio station that has made such an impact on her life and in Atlanta radio.
Tim Andrews began his radio career in 1989 working for WNBT-FM in Wellsboro Pennsylvania. After that he moved onto country radio doing “The Cooking Country” show on WQIX-FM in Elmira, NY. Tim moved to Atlanta in 1996 where he got a job with the late Z-93 and eventually made his way to 96 rock where he joined Eric Von Haessler as a producer for The Regular Guys Show. In 2015 Tim left radio to work for Ammazza Pizza in Atlanta. Eric enticed Tim back to radio with promises of laughter, fun, hard work, and the chance to hang out with English Nick. When he's not working Tim likes to have fun with his two dogs cat and lovely girlfriend. He likes comedy, animation, pop-culture, being a fly in the political ointment, and spending way too much time on the Internet. Tim is available for birthday parties or any voiceover need you may have and also hosts a podcast of his own called Radio Labyrinth. Most importantly, Tim loves you!
English Nick has been on Rock Radio in Atlanta since 1999 starting and worked with Eric Von Haessller for the first time during their time together at WKLS 96 Rock. Eric and Nick remained friends ever since and now are so excited to be working together on News 95.5/750 AM WSB. Nick’s is still “talking up the records” as Eric calls it on 97.1 The River 7pm to midnight Monday through Friday. He also is a co owner of Dr Bombay’s tea shop in Candler Park! Nick presents “Outrage Corner” every week on the Von Haessller Doctrine so if you've got some outrage to share, get it to him.
It took Greg three months to write his bio, putting it off by claiming to be busy, though he never really gave any insight into what that meant. When he finally did send something, this is what it read: 'You want to know more about me? Why? What does it matter? Does anyone really care? Just writing about myself and putting it out there as if people are interested is self-serving. People will probably read it and think, 'This guy is a jerk to think I have any regard to his existence.' So, I'd rather not make that assumption. If someone really wants to know more, they can email me. I'll gladly respond to them. When I'm not busy.' After several requests for something a bit more in-depth (most of which were ignored), we received this at 3:37 one morning: 'Okay. I'll write about my radio experience, hopefully quelling any idea I'm a complete fraud. ''I started as an intern for the Regular Guys in January of 2001. It was there I formed a friendship with Eric, though that was quite an uphill battle, as Eric was initially cold and excluding. Maybe it was the backwards baseball hat and ball bearing necklace I would wear at the time. If I saw a guy like that, I would've been cold and excluding too. Eventually I won him over by fooling him into thinking I was funny and smart. ''While interning, the company that owned 96Rock launched a small alternative rock station - 96.7 The Buzz. Being a cheap corporation, they didn't want to hire any real talent, assuming they could get kids around the station to fill out the on-air roster for low pay and promotional items. They were right. I put together a demo and once again I fooled someone into thinking I was funny and smart. Dekker was born. 'Dekker' was the fake name I had to use on the air, as my real name wasn't 'edgy' enough to be a rock 'n' roll DJ. I hated the name Dekker. ''After a few years, I made the jump to 99X, where someone thought I was funny and smart, offering me the night shift. This was the big time. I was ready. I brought my 'A' game. It was going well, until the station was sold and new ownership thought I was too funny and too smart. I was taken off the air for being too creative. Their words, not mine. ''Realizing I was pretty good at tricking people into thinking I was funny and smart, I moved to New York. The next victim of my misrepresentation was WRXP, a new rock station that had launched in the city. It was fine. I was a weekend and fill-in jock. I got to use my real name on the air. The station's transmitter was on top of the Empire State Building, which meant my voice emitted from up there, which I thought was pretty cool. The station was eventually sold and the format was flipped, so we all lost our jobs. Think about that: A whole staff cut because some crazy man convinced a group of well-to-do people who wanted more money that he could deliver that to them if they invested in a news station with an entertainment tilt. Ultimately, the joke was on him, as the station miserably failed. I appreciated his ability to fool others on such a large scale, though. ''Afterward, disenchanted with the industry, I got into video production. I still do that. But Eric pulled me back into radio, and I'm glad he did. It helped me realize that I might actually be funny and smart. Maybe.'
Eric calls me the Pilot of The Von Haessler Doctrine, I make sure they get the show off the ground at 9am and land safely at 12pm. Working on my 22nd year at WSB. In radio 30 years.  Married 25 years. S. Air Force veteran. 34 year old daughter, Sarah won the Mrs. Nebraska America title in 2017. Most enjoyable hobby is powerlifting, helps me carry more guns and ammo. I’m Erick’s go-to source of info for weaponry questions.

News

  • It's been a major distraction for drivers on Florida’s Turnpike in Osceola County. They don't know if she has a home, but a dog, whom some are now calling Ozzy, certainly has a lot of people watching out for her. >> Read more trending news  Dispatchers at the turnpike’s Traffic Management Center have spent months doing everything they can to catch the dog before she or a driver gets hurt. On Friday, Florida Turnpike officials said she was captured. She is very calm and quiet. There's a whole team of people watching hundreds of cameras along the turnpike and keeping an eye out for anything that may be dangerous for drivers. But consistently since May, in one particular part of the road, they kept seeing the same dog over and over. Road Ranger Jonathon Hester patrols a stretch of the turnpike near the Yeehaw Junction. “Our No. 1 job is safety,' Hester said. He's usually routing drivers around wrecks or helping with a flat tire. But lately, he's been determined to find the furry fugitive. 'This one has just evaded us for a long time and we keep trying to find him,” Hester said. For about two months, dispatchers were seeing the yellow Labrador between mile markers 196 and 205 on the turnpike, headed southbound. 'And just kind of runs up and down the roadway. It's a big distraction for the motorists driving by,” Hester said. “People see it and slam on their brakes.' Officials said they have no idea where she came from. 'It's possible it could've come from a vehicle crash,” Hester said. “A motorist could've been traveling with this dog, and crashed and the dog got scared and ran away.' Because she's been living on the road in Osceola County, they have affectionately named her Ozzy. Osceola County Animal Control let Hester borrow a trap in an effort to catch Ozzy. Now that the dog is caught, they plan to scan Ozzy for a chip to see if she has a home. If not, Ozzy may be up for adoption.
  • The Jacksonville Game Center has been burglarized twice in less than a month with thieves making off with nearly $10,000 worth of Magic the Gathering cards.  >> Read more trending news  Store owners told Action News Jax that both times, the thieves busted through a wall to get in. Hector Ortiz is a regular at the game center. Action News Jax caught up with him as customers and staff were preparing for their Friday night Magic the Gathering tournament. “The place is pretty packed, we have anywhere from 20-plus players,” Ortiz said. “It’s like a second home. A lot of people come to get away from issues.” So, when these crimes occur, Ortiz said the customers take it as a personal attack. “The first time it happened was really heartbreaking,” Ortiz said. Action News Jax first reported three weeks ago when thieves busted a hole in the wall to take more than $5,000 rare Magic the Gathering cards. The owner said they came back again overnight Friday. Surveillance video showed the glow of their flashlights. The owner said this time, they left another hole in the wall and stole more than $3,000 in those same, valuable cards.  He said they busted through the wall at the restaurant next door. Friday, Hunan Wok had a board up in the window where the thieves broke their glass to get in.Ortiz had a message for the thieves. “Just grow up,” Ortiz said. “It’s not necessary. You’re attacking us for a quick buck. Just go out there and get a job, man.
  • A woman is in jail facing felony charges after Clayton County authorities said she allegedly sneaked a firecracker into a courtroom and threatened to blow up the place.  >> Read more trending news  Whitney Jefferies, 32, was arrested Monday night after a judge saw the threat the woman allegedly posted on social media, Channel 2 Action News reported.  Judge Michael Garrett said Jefferies was in the front row in his courtroom. He told Channel 2 she seemed agitated that it was taking so long for her case to be called.  Later, he saw a video she posted on her social media page in which she held up a firecracker and said she was going to blow the courtroom apart, the news station reported.  It is not clear how Jefferies got the firecracker into the courtroom, and Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill has not commented on the situation. Deputies went to Jefferies’ condo in Morrow to arrest her, Channel 2 reported. Nobody answered when agents first knocked on her door, according to the news station.However, deputies realized someone was inside the home when a pizza was delivered to the house later that evening, Channel 2 reported.  Deputies went back to Jefferies’ door and brought her out in handcuffs, the news station reported.  Jefferies was booked into the Clayton jail, where she remains held on a $35,000 bond. She face three charges, including making terroristic threats and possession of a destructive device.
  • A Charlotte, North Carolina woman and her Australian boyfriend were murdered while they were traveling the world, officials said. >> Read more trending news  Chynna Deese, 24, and her boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, 23, were found shot and killed on a remote western Canadian highway Monday near their broken down van, WSOC-TV reported. Officials said they were exploring Canadian national parks and heading to Alaska. Police said this does not appear connected to any other crimes. Friday night, WSOC-TV interviewed Chynna's mother Sheila Deese, who said despite not knowing how her daughter died, she's comforted in knowing her daughter and Fowler were together until the end. 'It is a love story, a southern girl goes out of the country, meets this Australian and they were just the same personality,' Sheila Deese said. Canadian Police said they don't know if Deese and Fowler were targeted or if this was random. They said they are working with the FBI to find the couple's killer. 
  • A 77-year-old convicted murderer who was released from prison after being deemed 'too old' to kill again was convicted this week of fatally stabbing a Maine woman. >> Read more trending news  Albert Flick was found guilty Wednesday of killing 48-year-old Kimberly Dobbie in July 2018 outside a Lewiston laundromat. The attack happened in front of Dobbie's 11-year-old twin boys. 'I'm glad the verdict is done and over and I'm glad he'll never be able to walk the streets again,' said Dobbie's friend James Lipps, NBC News reported. This is Flick's second murder conviction. Flick was convicted in the 1979 death of his wife, Sandra. Similar to Dobbie's death, Flick stabbed his wife as her daughter watched, CNN reported. Flick was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the 1979 murder. He was released and was released in 2000 after 21 years for good behavior, The Washington Post reported.  By 2010, when he was in his late 60s, Flick had been convicted of assaulting two other women. Despite his record, the judge in the 2010 case sentenced him to four years. “At some point Mr. Flick is going to age out of his capacity to engage in this conduct,” Maine Superior Court Justice Robert E. Crowley said, according to the Portland Press Herald. “And incarcerating him beyond the time that he ages out doesn’t seem to me to make good sense.” Judge Crowley retired in 2010. He hasn't responded to media requests for comment. Flick is scheduled for sentencing August 9. He faces 25 years to life behind bars. “I firmly believe this could have been prevented,” Elsie Clement, whose mother was stabbed to death by Flick in 1979, told the Press Herald last year of Dobbie's death. “There is no reason this man should have been on the streets in the first place, no reason.”
  • Public school students in New Hampshire will be provided with free menstrual products thanks to the passage of a new law. SB 142, signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Chris Sununu, will require public schools to provide feminine hygiene products in women’s and gender-neutral bathrooms in high schools and middle schools starting January 1, The Concord Monitor reported.  >> Read more trending news  “This legislation is about equality and dignity,” Sununu said. “SB 142 will help ensure young women in New Hampshire public schools will have the freedom to learn without disruption – and free of shame, or fear of stigma.” The idea for the law came from 17-year-old Caroline Dillon, a high school student in Rochester, N.H. The high schooler was inspired to act after learning in U.S. History class about 'period poverty,' where those who can't afford feminine hygiene products miss work or school during menstruation. “It was sad to think about,” Dillon told The Monitor. “Girls in middle and high school would never dream of telling somebody that they have to miss school or use socks because they can’t pay for pads.” Dillon approached state Sen. Martha Hennessey with her idea, and Hennesey became a main sponsor of the bill. Educating some lawmakers was initially awkward, Dillon said. Most lawmakers are men, and wanted to avoid words like 'menstruation,' 'tampon' and 'feminine hygiene products,' The Monitor reported. “They would say ‘the thing’ or just try to avoid saying it all together,” Dillon said. “I would say to them, ‘If this makes you uncomfortable, think about how uncomfortable it is to be in this situation yourself. If you can't really picture it yourself, think about any woman in your life: your mom, your daughter, your aunt – think about how uncomfortable she feels – you are in the position to make it so these women don’t have to feel that way.’ ”  Dillon's efforts were ultimately successful. Funding for the new measure will come from school districts' budgets, according to CNN. Districts can partner with nonprofit organizations to provide the feminine hygiene products. Opponents of the bill said its amounts to an unconstitutional unfunded mandate,  USA Today reported. Similar laws currently exist in New York, Illinois and California.
