Athena is a name (and voice) some might re­mem­ber from the days of ra­dio past.

Athena Mat­sikas Pavone was part of the team that launched Star 101 in Fresno the late ’90s and was part of the sta­tion’s pop­u­lar morn­ing show with Charlee Si­mons. She later did morn­ings on coun­try sta­tion 102.7 FM.

She mostly left the busi­ness in the late 2000s to de­vote time to be­ing a mother (she did host “Mommy Talk with Athena” on­line at Cen­tral Val­ley Talk).

Mat­sikas Pavone re­turns to the air­waves 10 a.m. Sept. 9 on 99.3 NOW FM.

You can hear her in the mid­day slot, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on week­days, which fits per­fectly be­tween drop­ping the kids off and pick­ing them up from school.

“As a soc­cer mom, wife and fam­ily cheer leader, I have a burn­ing de­sire to share my ex­pe­ri­ence,” Mat­sikas Pavone said in a news re­lease from the sta­tion.

“It’s not easy jug­gling all the de­mands, but it sure is fun and I re­ally miss the in­ter­ac­tion with lis­ten­ers.”

NOW FM 99.3 is owned by One Putt Broad­cast­ing. The com­pany, lo­cated on Ful­ton Street in down­town Fresno, owns seven sta­tions, in­clud­ing 95.7 the Fox, New Rock 104.1, ESPN 940 (and ESPN 2), K-Jewel and KYNO.
