Nathan’s tireless energy, creativity, humor, and infectious personality allow him to effortlessly connect with people from all walks of life, and can be traced back to his early days growing up on a farm nestled in the cornfields of Ohio, where he learned the values of respect, hard work, and persistence.
After receiving his finance degree from Indiana University, he packed everything he owned into his Mitsubishi Eclipse and drove cross-country to Las Vegas to begin a career as a financial analyst for MGM-MIRAGE.
While still working his corporate job during the day, Nathan began simultaneously doing the overnight shift at 98.5 KLUC and quickly realized that was his true calling. After more than a year of surviving on energy drinks and two-hour naps, he decided to retire from the finance industry and pursue a full-time radio job.
Following three months of sending demos to radio stations all over the country, Nathan landed his first full-time radio gig in Boise, Idaho where he hosted his own night show for several years before making the jump to his first major-market gig at Channel 933 in San Diego.
Within six months, Nathan was given the opportunity of a lifetime when the program director of the legendary 102.7 KIIS-FM in Los Angeles offered him his own weekend on-air shift.
In addition to being heard in both LA and San Diego, Nathan was heard daily for years on Mstyleradio (which airs in all 850 US Macy’s stores) and weekly in more than 80 markets across the nation including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Dallas by hosting special features on the weekly iHeartRadio Countdown and his own show on Clear Channel’s mainstream CHR Premium Choice platform.
Nathan then made the transition to morning drive, where he woke up America’s fifth largest radio market daily, hosting Fast In The Morning on Dallas-Fort Worth’s AMP 103.7, gaining national exposure from media outlets ranging from E! News and Entertainment Tonight to People Magazine and Us Weekly.
Nathan can now be heard hosting Nathan Fast and the Wake Up With The Wolf Show on America’s most-listened to country station, 99.5 The Wolf.
