When I was a kid, I thought a tape recorder was the coolest thing I had ever seen. My friends and I would record ourselves telling jokes, reading news stories from the local paper, and then make our parents listen to them over and over. My first job at a real radio station was running the board for Cardinal Baseball. These days, I’m privileged to work for ad agencies and production houses around the world as a voice talent, but I love the interaction with people listening in our area. I get to find out about them and speak about what matters to them.
I can truly say that right now, after being in radio for 30 plus years, I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had behind the mic! It’s such a pleasure to work with everyone at White River Now and visit every day with the greatest listeners on the planet! I’m proud to call Izard County home, growing up in Melbourne and later attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. I met my lovely wife, Melanie, while working at a radio station in Dickson, Tennessee in the late 90’s. I returned home to join the White River Now family in 2007. When I’m not on air, I enjoy playing with our son Billy, making a lot of obnoxious noise on the drums, or going for nice long jogs while listening to, well the radio of course!
I’ve worked just over a decade in the radio industry. I started my career in the Cave City High School radio program and went on to graduate from Arkansas State University where I studied Radio-Television. Over the years I’ve worked at various broadcast companies, both radio and television in Jonesboro and Little Rock. I’m a Batesville native. Aside from radio, I spend time reading, painting, music and being social. I have two absolutely spoiled furbabies, Mia and Beau.
I’m a bit of a homer; I grew up in the blink of an eye town of Charlotte and graduated from Cedar Ridge High School. From there, I became a proud Red Wolf, obtaining my degree in Creative Media Production at Arkansas State University. When not in the studio, I’m very likely at a dirt track somewhere in the Mid-South. For three years I was the Track Announcer at Batesville Motor Speedway and now travel all across the South announcing with the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series. I’m a big people person. If I can help someone smile just for a second, then all the work over the years has been worth it. I’m truly blessed to be part of such a great company that has welcomed me in with open arms since day one.
