I like putting a smile on my listeners’ faces as they drive home, so I keep things upbeat, funny and informative, whether I’m telling you about different events in our community, introducing a great concert, or hosting a charity fundraiser. It’s gratifying being able to touch people with something I say on air or do at an event. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, movies, football and grilling out. Radio has changed a lot since I began working weekends on KOSY 790 AM when I was 16 years old, but it has been very good to me and it is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a little boy. I’m just blessed I’ve been able to do it all these years.
