I began my radio career in North Platte, NE (KAHL) in July 1974. From there it was Burlington, CO (KNAB). Clinton, MO (KDKD), Omaha, NE (KFAB), Rochester in 1983-90, then Rapid City, SD (KKKMK & KKLS) for almost 9 years. In fall 1999, I came back and have been at KROC AM ever since! Thank you for listening! I graduated from Richfield High School ('71) and went to the University of Minnesota and Brown Institute in 1973. My wife Nancy and I have been married since 1979 and we have three great kids, Scott, Tim and Kaitlyn. Two awesome grandkids (Zoey and Jack) keep us hopping. I'm a huge Gopher fan and have been since I was old enough to know better in 1959. I love any pro team from Minnesota. I am the P.A. announcer for the Rochester Honkers, an occasional announcer for the local high schools, help out at Apollo Liquor, and do some "medical acting" at Mayo Clinic.
