A part of WGFA since 2008, Darcey is the loudest shy person in Illiana…but you wouldn’t know it because she loves to talk! Darcey can be heard weekdays on 94.1FM, 10am-4pm.
From her humble beginnings schlepping ice cream cones at the local ice cream shop, all the way to the WGFA airwaves, the former Executive Director of the Watseka Area Chamber of Commerce brings her energy and enthusiasm to listeners throughout Illiana. Born and raised right here in good ol’ Illiana, Darcey Smith enjoys reading. In fact, she enjoys reading so much, if possible, she would give up sleep entirely, just so she could read books non-stop. She loves murder mystery books, especially James Patterson, Lisa Gardner and Mary Higgins Clark. “I love sudoku puzzles. The harder the better! I usually start with the hardest level and work my way back to the easy ones.” When she was 15, learning to drive, Darcey wished for a car with no brake lights. “I wanted a car without brake lights because I didn’t want people to know I was riding the brake all the time.” Darcey also enjoys Sledding and 4-wheeling with her two children and sitting around with friends enjoying a laugh or two. “I'm so excited for you to sit around, drive along or just hang out with me for a laugh or two everyday on WGFA!”
