Sharon Carr’s impact on the Travel Industry has been felt since the early 70’s, when she began a lifelong friendship with Radio Hall of Fame broadcaster Ron Chapman, and created the “KVIL World Tour”. For 35 years Sharon & Ron sent countless radio listeners all over the world, until Ron’s retirement, and our subsequent adoption by Jody Dean & the Morning Team in 2005, where you can find us today.
A graduate of TCU with a Music Degree, Sharon’s early life as a performer at places like Six Flags over Texas and other venues, laid the foundation for her radio personality that has attracted radio listeners for so long now. Beginning with our first trip in in 1971 (a week in Waikiki for $289!!), the KVIL World Tour, and now the KLUV World Tour, has sent thousands of travelers to all 7 continents, and in 2016 announced our 2000th trip with CBS Radio!
