On The Air by Ephraim Ellis

CJLN 'The Loon' is the fourth most popular local radio station in Northlamburton county, and it has only one problem... no one is listening.

Station manager Alice Kerwin has her hands full dealing with the local arts council, insubordinate interns, and egotistical DJs - but she really has her work cut out for her when Matt, the former station manager's son, returns to town with a plan to revitalize the station for the modern era... and change everything.

Will Matt be able to help Alice drag 'The Loon' kicking and screaming into the 21st century without losing what makes it a charming and quirky local broadcaster? Will Matt be able to reconcile with his estranged uncle Art, 'The Loon's' biggest donor (and loudest DJ)? And will Matt and Alice finally admit they've had a crush on each other since high school?

On The Air is a comedy about family, ambition, rock and roll, and dreams pursued in the unlikeliest of places.
