I am excited to be in Elkins, working in a great community with this fantastic radio station. I started in radio in 1983, as a high school kid. I have been part-time, and full-time, in radio since that year. I’ve worked in Beckley, Mount Hope, Oak Hill, and Charleston. There’s really nothing in radio I haven’t done. As much as I enjoy playing music, my absolute favorite thing in radio is Play by Play. I’ve been doing High School and College football and basketball play by play since 1990. As part of a team in Charleston, we won the “Best Play by Play Broadcast” award 6 years in a row… and I won the individual “Best Play By Play Announcer” a few years ago. I’ve done high school sports in Beckley, Shady Spring, Charleston, and most recently, Tygarts Valley. For two years, I was the play by play guy for WV State University, and am part of the MetroNews Sports Team for the annual Mountain East Conference Basketball Tournament.
I am also honored to be a Retired Senior Master Sergeant from the US Air Force, with nearly 28 years of service. I served part time for a few years and ended my career an active duty capacity with the WV Air National Guard. I was fortunate to maintain my part-time radio career during my military service, and am proud to have served this state and country.
I have been married to my amazing wife, Diana, since 2019. We are die-hard WVU Mountaineer football and basketball fans, and I’ve been a fan of the New England Patriots since 1975. So you’ll find us watching sports in the fall and winter… and spending our summers out by the firepit.
I’ve lived most of my life in Fayette County, but moved to this area about a year ago… and am loving every minute of it. It’s beautiful here and the people are some of the nicest I’ve ever met. I will be here every weekday morning from 6am until 10am… and will even visit with you on the weekends… playing Elkins Greatest Hits on 94.7 WELK.
