I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the famous "WKRP in Cincinnati" line goes. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Wash at KCLK-FM, a country station, and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I worked on KMPS-FM in Seattle in the late 1990s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as program director of 107-3 KFFM. I moved again and again (because I can't seem to keep a job) until I was in Bakersfield, California,and then Tri-Cities, and then back to Yakima, and again to Tri-Cities as morning show host and brand manager of 98.3 The Key. I bought a farm in Prosser a few years back with my wife Megan and we sold it last year and we now live in Kennewick. We have three great dogs named Phoebe, Barkley and Roxy. My son is an aspiring musician and plays, performs and writes original music. I also have a stepson named Kyran who is just starting high school. I’m known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture and easily get addicted to TV reality shows. I like "Star Trek," Mustangs (the car) and '80s music which is the era I seem to be stuck in. I’m also a huge comic book fan, having a comic collection easily totaling more than 6,000 comics with some rare comic books thrown in for good measure.

Looks Like I’m On The Job Endangered List

I love being a radio broadcaster and I've been fortunate to have been able to make this my career for close to 30 years.

I got started in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Washington playing 45's and 33's in the middle of the night on the Country radio station on the weekends and I became hooked. I decided to make a career of radio broadcasting.

We now flash forward to 2017 and a new survey of the worst jobs of 2017 has me and a lot of other folks on the danger list.

Take a look at the list and see if your career is on the list as well.

It's been a tough week or so concerning continued gang violence in Yakima and it's got all of us restless and a bit scared on the location of the Yakima gangs. There is a new Google Map that lays out the areas of some of the current Yakima gangs locations.
