Some of my favorite things about Chicago: Italian beef, deep-dish pepperoni pizza and the incredible Chicago skyline. I enjoy spending time with my family, water skiing, old movies and cruising in my Challenger SRT 8.
My first job in Chicago radio was at 99 WE FM. During the 80′s I hosted a nationally broadcast program on the Satellite Music Network. My show was heard on 250 stations in all 50 states. After that, it was mornings on 100.3 The Point. In the mid-90′s I joined the team at Oldies 104.3. In 1999, I began doing commercial production and voice-over work for WGN Radio. Since 2006, I’ve been the Production Director for Salem Communications – Chicago. However, on the weekend, I get to play Chicago’s Greatest Hits of the 60′s, 70′s & 80′s on 104-3 K HiTS and I’m loving it!
