On Air: Sunday -- 12:00 PM - 04:00 PM

I am one of the voices you hear on News Country Z100. I am the host of the Saturday Morning Oldies Show every Saturday Morning from 6:00 am – 9:00 am.  I also have all of your back-to-back country every Sunday afternoon from Noon-4:00pm, and time to time throughout the week. I started in radio back in the mid-eighties, when my dad was the GM for one of the local radio stations.  At the time, I was working for an ambulance service in my hometown of Hannibal , Mo.  I was complaining how burnt out I was, and was asked if I wanted to move to Southern Illinois and learn the radio business.  I said yes and two weeks later I worked my first shift…and that’s how radio got into my blood. I love to interact with our listeners, especially when we are at concerts or during our Country Cares for St. Jude Radiothon each year.  I love the opportunity to work with my Z100 family. Kent, Tracy, Shawna, Josh and I have been together for several years and it is a pleasure to get to work with these fantastic people.  The one event that exemplifies that is when we come together for our St. Jude Radiothon.  We LOVE St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  We believe in the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and we love it when you help support the Hospital during our Radiothon. I love living in Southern Illinois and everything we have in our region.  I am a huge sports fan including our Southern Illinois Miners, SIU Saluki’s and Carterville Lions sports.  A little more about me, I play golf as often and possible, I love spending as much time as possible with my family and we enjoy attending various concerts and events thought out region.
