    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.  Now I hold the position of assistant news director and I host the mid-days 10am to 2pm 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.
