Melissa, Chief Operations Officer
Melissa and Kevin started The Black Sphere together. She brings knowledge and experience in both accounting and legal from the state of California. Melissa handles anything accounting, business and legal related, relationship cultivation and retention, merchandise fulfillment, business research – essentially it all flows through her. Melissa is currently pursuing a second degree in the medical field.
Liz is also a Realtor with experience in executive recruitment, resume writing, sales and child abuse/neglect investigations.

Dave, Radio Production Engineer / Radio Program Imaging
Dave runs our audio and is the voice of The Black Sphere radio. Dave brings decades of knowledge in Conservatism to the team, and is our elder statesman. When Dave is not golfing, you will find him chasing Liberals down rat holes, and daring them to poke their heads out.

Misty, Radio Syndication
Melissa, or “Misty” as we call her, has roots in the Radio Broadcasting industry as a journalist, anchor, on-air personality, Administration, Programming and Management, but is also a proud Mom, and Conservative who loves her family, God and Country! Currently she operates her voice over and audio production business while spreading the good news that is Kevin Jackson to the radio masses, and anyone who will listen.
Tami, Editor for The Black Sphere
Tami Jackson (@tamij) is a life-long Conservative embedded in her once red state of Oregon. The grand-daughter of (legal) Norwegian immigrants, she is equal parts goofy and stubborn! Tami is a Christian, the “mom” of one Persian cat (Omar), a 2nd Amendment aficionado and NRA Certified, a grammar Nazi, the chief organizer and instigator of trouble among the Hugh Hewitt Tribbles, and prone to laugh often and without warning! Oh … and she has SPUNK! Tami also hosts The Tami Jackson Radio Show (such a creative title) on the405radio.com every Tuesday night.
Jackie, Editor for Unhyphenated America
Jackie Sanchez DuVal is a 35 year old mother of two, married for 9 years, with a dog and an idiot cat. She loves spending time with her family, is a roller coaster enthusiast and water slide lover. Maybe it’s time to grow up … or maybe her two little boys keep her young … or maybe she taught them how to obsess over thrill rides … or maybe that’s just none of your business. Professionally, she is a Magna Cum Laude graduate with a degree in marketing, and has spent the last few years in free lance writing and social media marketing. She is a Christian woman, and proud of that faith. Although, sometimes she gets the stink eye in church. It happens. Jackie Sanchez DuVal is not a fan of separation, and believes in an Unhyphenated America.

Chris, Graphic Artist
Raised as a Democrat leaning independent, at the age of 22 Chris took it upon himself to research every party he could find, eventually settling on the Libertarian party. In the late 90′s he was placed on the executive committee for the LP of Kansas. As he became older and started going to church again he has become a little more socially conservative, with the Tea Party as a perfect fit. He is a graphic designer and video producer, with web design thrown in to the mix. At the age of 36 he started a fair conservative newspaper and online TV station in Missouri. During that time he grew to truly despise all the lies he heard from other media sources and decided to do something about it. Married since 1995, he has three kids–one of which is adopted.
