Came to Illinois from Washington State in 2000. I worked in radio in Joliet for a few years and also worked outside of radio for awhile, I think just to prove to myself I could do something else. During that time, I rose to the rank of manager at Sears Automotive. Before I came to Illinois, I worked in radio in Spokane Washington from 1976 to 2000. 13 plus years of that at one AM/FM combo. 10 of those years as news director. All that news experience is what landed me a part-time gig to begin here at WIVR in December of 2011. Now I hold the position of assistant news director and I host the mid-days 10am to 3pm which I have been doing over the past several years since 2013 on WIVR/WYUR. I love music and it is the music that brought me to broadcasting. I also like to think I have an off-the-wall wit, and will say the unexpected .. and that is why you should tune in. Thanks for listening.
