My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

Why two winners again? Well, basically because they ran out of words to spell.

So, What Do These Letters Stand For, Anyway?

The English language is the toughest language in the world to learn simply because many of our words are spelled the same but mean something different. Take the word "can."  It can be a used as a verb as in "yes, you can do something" or as a noun in "just put it in the can." That is just one word of hundreds like it in our language. Then come abbreviations for words and acronyms.
