Operations Manager, Program Director and On-Air Personality
After 30 plus years in retail sales and being a business owner, I started a new career in radio with WVHL in 2003. Who said you couldn’t teach and old dog new tricks? As Operations Manager and Program Director, I oversee day to day operations deciding music, sports and community affairs that are broadcast on the station and I host the Late Morning Show week days. Can’t believe they let me do that! My favorite part of the job are the people that I get to meet and talk to, Country music stars, TV and movie stars, politicians, community leaders and a host of other interesting folks. I grew up listening to Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell so country music is in my blood and I love the new artists that keep this genre evolving. I have been married to my wife, Marsha since 1977. Do the math, that’s a long time so she certainly deserves a medal for putting up with me. We’ve got three sons and a gaggle of grandchildren. I don’t know if it’s a gaggle but 10 is a lot! We like to travel, love music and streaming our favorite TV shows. My wife wants me to retire but I can’t…. I’m having too much fun! Until then I’ll see you on the radio!
