I got my start in radio like so many get their start in every other cool field in America: NEPOTISM!
Kidding, though radio is the family business. I started as a board-op in Canton, Ohio when I was sixteen, working for my dad, who has been in radio all my life. So when I needed a job, it went like this: they needed a board op, and I said “I can do that”. That’s it. Simple, right? It’s amazing what good connections can do for ya! After a while, I graduated to weekends on air, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Since then, I’ve spent the last twelve years (almost thirteen, now…) all over the place. I spent two years in Canton radio, then a year in New Milford, CT renting movies at the last remaining Blockbuster Video in the world! (Hyperbole) Then, I moved down to Pensacola, FL for three years. Spent a little time in Melbourne, FL after that, then moved up to Jamestown, NY (the home of Lucille Ball…and they’ll never let you forget it!). Now, after Scott begged and begged (lies!), I come to Montrose to bring Colorado my unique (strange) brand of humor and insight!
