My work in radio began when Larry Wilson hired me while I was in high school to work nights on the weekends in 1993. Through hard work and dedication over the years, I have managed to work all the way up to working mornings on the weekend.  I am also the person who gets the call at 3:00 am when any of the on the air full-timers needs to take some time off.

While I do enjoy being the anchor (that is often dragging down) of the Saturday Morning Show and filling in on the Morning Show, the Drive Home, and for Greg doing the news and sports; my biggest passion in radio is covering sports. I covered my first basketball at the NTC Tournament in 1996 and have found a way to keep doing games ever since. I was fortunate to be asked in 2004 to come over to WXEF and KJCountry when Larry Wilson retired.  I value the opportunity to meet and work with so many great people around high school sports.  I also treasure watching some great athletes and teams who have treated me with the chance to announce great regular season, tournament, and postseason games. 

When I am not at the radio station or at games, I am attempting to farm with my family just outside of Edgewood. I have a wonderful wife Ann, who is obviously a very patient person. She allows me to have this crazy schedule and makes it all work for me and the kids. My daughter Molly has been very involved in livestock and has shown cattle successfully at several local and national shows and is pursuing her own career. My son Mason is very passionate about sports and has played about every one of them at one time or another but especially enjoys baseball and basketball. He keeps us very busy going from practice to games while also showing pigs at the local fairs in the summer.

If you are still reading this you are either very bored at work or more interested in my life than...well anybody I can think of.  Either way, I appreciate it and I hope to be a part of your radio family for years to come.
