Valentine is the host of Valentine in the Morning and signs his emails "Colin's Daddy, Leilani's Husband, Red Sox Fan". He has worked in radio since he was 15, starting at a little station in Connecticut.
The little known facts category about Valentine include: former police officer, USO Entertainer (with over ten overseas tours), comedian, arachnophobia-sufferer, and a man's man (he wrote that last part).
Valentine is a winner of the ABC Radio Personality of the Year, RMA Personality of the Year, and Radio and Records Personality of the Year Nominee. Valentine's most important attribute on air is his desire to be open with his listeners and to share his real life, thereby allowing the listener to share theirs as well.

Jillian Escoto is the pop culture princess of Valentine in the Morning. She spends most of her time keeping up with reality TV and celebrities so you don't have to. Jill is single and currently accepting applications.
Nate Marino gets paid to be the Executive Producer of Valentine in the Morning, but he offers up his wisecracks and opinions free of charge. He's also a self-professed "know-it-all" and WILL correct your grammar, punctuation and spelling should you email him (go ahead, try it...).
Dylan Riggs mostly works behind the scenes on the show, but sometimes you'll hear him chime in on a microphone. He has the coolest dog on the planet named Dexter. He's addicted to chapstick and has way too many shoes. Sometimes, we catch him looking under the vending machines when he needs change - and he's not ashamed either. And we like it when he breaks into song while forgetting he is in public.
Jimmy is the oldest member of the Valentine in the Morning staff... in fact, no one really knows how old he is or even much about him. We do know that he has a girlfriend, fought in Vietnam and he drove a cab at some point in his life. If you know Jimmy (or what his name was before he apparently entered the Witness Protection Program) please let us know.
You know it’s time for another season of Dancing With the Stars when rumors start about who will be joining the cast. But one person who will NOT be in the ballroom: Ann Romney. Dancing with the Stars approached Ann about being a contestant just after Mit Romney lost the election and she was "very interested." Ann was even in the audience at last season's finale and said she was a big fan of the show. TMZ says Ann and producers had several meetings to work out a few details, but Ann ultimately decided against it.
And it’s no surprise to anyone – but Lindsay Lohan has made another dumb mistake. So, The Santa Monica City Attorney -- who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash -- was willing to keep Lindsay out of jail, if she agreed to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months. Well, Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley –the woman who has kept Lindsay out of jail all of this time-- was on her way to court yesterday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to complete the deal. But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay decided to fire her yesterday and hire a new lawyer. A man who was suspended in the '90s from practicing law for 5 years by the way. There's a hearing scheduled for 8:30 this morning – TMZ says Lindsay is scared and now wants Shawn back – so we will see which lawyer shows up to court later this morning.
Britney Spears’ ex fiance Jason Trawick had a little help with his break up with Britney. He went to her dad, Jamie Spears, first to discuss ending their engagement. Perez Hilton says they decided how the relationship needed to end and how to go about removing Jason from the conservatorship, when he would move out and how to announce the split. Jason and Jamie wanted to make sure that Britney didn’t go down in another downward spiral over it, so they had to be careful.
Ellen Degeneres has American Idol judge Nicki Minaj on her show later today – and of course brings up the feud that never dies between Mariah Carey. Nikki said she developed a defense mechanism – because she heard that Mariah didn’t like her. She said her feelings were hurt and she couldn’t believe it, so she kind of just compensated with being crazy. As far as Nicki and Mariah's relationship now, Nikki says she can’t hold a grudge and has gotten over it – but not sure if Mariah has and doesn’t care either way. But Nicki said she's not looking forward to the live shows because she can't trust herself. And if anyone on the judging panel says something “too crazy” towards her, she doesn’t want want to look like a crazy psycho again.
