I was born in Binghamton and I have been extremely blessed to have had a history with this community as a broadcaster for 30 years. My love affair (with radio) started in the 80’s and is still going strong today. I have been a morning man, program director, public affairs director, and even a news reporter at various stations. I have spent over half of my broadcast career in country music including a decade at the Hawk, and I am right back here again and look forward to being a part of your weekday from 10am to 3pm on 98.1 The Hawk!
