Joel Shimer

Joel is the Morning Show Producer at The Hawk. 

Joel, a self-proclaimed old soul, joined The Hawk one month before his senior year of high school, quickly becoming a fan favorite for his young outlook and perspective. An Emmaus native, Joel fell in love with classic rock from a young age, having spent his youth working alongside his father as an event DJ with their business Shimer and Son and as a guitarist/vocalist playing many events in and around the Lehigh Valley. Off the air, you’ll find Joel enjoying his extensive vinyl collection, working in his home studio, or trying….but failing horribly at making a TikTok recipe in the kitchen. Trouble and mischief have always seemed to find Joel, and he is thrilled to share his crazy life experiences every morning on The Hawk Morning Show with Rick Michaels.
