Bender grew up in Houston Tx. but has lived here long enough to consider Mississippi home!  His 1st and 4th radio job in Mississippi was at sister station Y101. He was part of several Morning Shows on Y101 starting with the Bob and Bender Showgram  and ending with The Nate and Bender Showgram in 2020. Bender took a break from radio to sell Real Estate and is now back with his beloved radio family here at Mix 98.7. Catch Bender weekday afternoons from 3p-7p for a fun and informative commute home.
