Radio was not the plan.
Dad was an engineer, Grandpa was an engineer… You see the beginnings of a pattern? But showing up at KRZR at 4 o’clock on a Thursday morning to ask for a job seemed like a good idea and being a professional goof-off won out over math and effort. More than 20 years later coffee, loud music, and not taking myself too seriously still get me through the day.
I’ve transitioned from being Clovis Unified’s most-wanted truant to volunteering for the Central California A.I.D.S. Foundation to accounting, construction management, and chauffeuring dead bodies. I’ve also set tile, done building inspections, and started a family.
Throughout it all I’ve kept one foot in the radio industry.
I’m a regular guest lecturer in Valley High School & College classrooms, spreading the good news about the role of media in government & civics. I’m also an advocate for Toys for Tots, the Community Food Bank of Central California, and the Central California Blood Center.
In 2010, I was invited to contribute to the Chris Daniel Show on KMJ. You can see how that’s worked out.
Catch me live, weekdays from 2PM to 6PM on News/Talk 580 & 105.9 KMJ. You can also listen worldwide with the TuneIn Radio app. And if my darling sales team ever gets around to selling a sponsorship you’ll even find a regular podcast around here somewhere…
