My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

The 9-11 Artifact at City Hall Represents Everything We Stand For

As you drive by the Quincy City Hall on Maine Street today, make a special attempt to look at the rusted out and bent television tower that is located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Plaza. That rusted out tower sat atop Building #1 of the World Trade Center in New York 13 years ago this morning. It ended up in the rubble of the two towers that collapsed later that morning as a result of the attack on the buildings in 2001.
