Alan Cox is considered one of the most highly-motivated crosscut saw enthusiasts in broadcasting. A veteran of the Chicago standup & electric lute scene, he began his radio career as a producer for WLUP/Chicago. He went on to host shows in Michigan, Pittsburgh and Chicago, as well as national programs from New York, Boston, Salt Lake City, and Los Angeles.
Alan was a columnist for Maniac magazine, spent six years as a commentator for PBS, and was arena host for the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Chicago Sky. He has hosted for Discovery.com, narrated documentaries on the Big Ten Network, and voices numerous national commercials. His comedy albums Alan Cox Sells Out, Ribbed, and Shadyside Bathroom Wall Blues continue to sully eBay's otherwise sterling reputation.
In his free time, Alan enjoys pondering the relative merits of free time. He lives in the western suburbs, where he subsists primarily on tequila & apples, and cannot swim.

Erika Lauren, a Chicago native, graduated from Columbia College with a degree in Music Business. After graduating, Erika nabbed a spot on MTV's long standing reality show The Real World in Washington, DC. She asks you kindly to not hold that against her, or the fact that she got this job via Twitter message. Erika can verify that, in fact, it does go down in the DM's.
Erika joined The Alan Cox Show in 2010 and has put her foot in her mouth ever since. When she's not unwittingly making suggestive remarks that are later used against her, she enjoys playing shows with her cover band Pop Vulture, out with squad (#goals), and attending local concerts and sporting events.
Erika loves Ohio and feels like Cleveland's adopted child. Erika is the self-proclaimed ambassador of the East Bank of the Flats, so you know where to find her on a Saturday night. Well, either there or at home with her husband and two cats because she's basic like that.

In 2004 Bill Squire was just your regular old excommunicated Mormon Missionary trying to find his way through life. He stumbled into a stand-up comedy open mic and years later he has made almost as much money as a middle school science teacher.
Bill has been seen on Comedy Central... but not for a long time. He won a contest that led to a clip of his stand up playing for about a minute during a commercial break. He was a regular cast member on the cult favorite YouTube series Man in the Box, starring opposite Cleveland Comedy Legend and Red Lobster regular Mike Polk Jr. Bill has worked with such famous comedians like Daniel Tosh, Dave Coulier, George Wallace, and doubts any of them remember his name.
In 2008 Bill recorded and released his debut album Sarcasm Bus independently and has sold thousands of copies. In 2011 Bill teamed up with Slow Mutant Productions and filmed his one hour comedy special Just Say Your Jokes which has over 37,000 views on YouTube. In 2013, Bill released Crowded, which reached number eight on the iTunes comedy charts.
Bill was named one of Cleveland Magazine's "Most Interesting People" in January of 2013 but would gladly give up his spot to that RTA bus driver that punched that loud chick.

CODY 'POUNDCAKE' BROWN
IWhat's up guys?! The name is Cody Brown, also known by my nickname, Poundcake. I'm the newest addition to The Alan Cox Show, and probably the loudest. I was an intern turned call-screener after Alan snatched me off the mic of my old college radio station, WZIP. As a child being born and raised in northeast Ohio, I had big dreams. I got into radio originally as a backup plan to marrying a wealthy white man twice my age, but now that I'm in it, I actually love it (still waiting on that wealthy white man though).
Hobbies include: watching trash TV, excessive social media use, creating alter-egos for myself, and drinking overly sweetened drinks to get drunk. Phobias: Bugs of any kind, pooping at work, and being ugly. You can catch me at any hotspot around the Rubber City or the CLE, because I'm always down for a few good friends and a good time. Watch out world, this millennial is about to take the broadcasting biz by storm! I'M A BRAND BITCH, I'M A BRAND!!!!
