When Gene and Julie Gates wed in the middle of Grand Central Terminal, the New York Times covered the story. When Oprah Winfrey heard about Gene & Julie, she invited them to Chicago as guests on her show. Gene & Julie host an award-winning American morning radio show which has aired in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas and Raleigh. Between 2005- 2013, The Gene & Julie Show was based in Dallas at the legendary KVIL, where it was the first show in thirteen years to return mornings to #1 in the ratings.
