    1. How did you get into radio in the first place? And why radio?

    When I was at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa in 1989, I had an hour in-between two classes that I needed to take, and there was a “TV and Radio” class. I figured, “I watch TV. I listen to the radio. This is one I should be able to pass.” I thought I was headed into TV, doing behind-the-scenes stuff. I was pretty good at running the switcher. Then I heard the professor tell another guy about an internship opportunity at 970 WFLA. I went down to the pay phone and called Steve Hall, who was the News Director. The next day, I had an interview, and by the next week, I was working as an intern in the newsroom.
