  • BRIEF CAREER SYNOPSIS:

    Other than KCLC, I interned at KTRS-AM and CBS's St. Louis FM cluster while in school. My first gig out of college was at an independent station owned by Jack and John Scheper, WHCO-AM in Sparta, IL, as a sales person in 2008. I eventually weaseled my way on air as co-host of my PD, Peter Stork's, morning show. By the end of my time there I was sales manager, working on the morning show, and calling sports. In 2010 I went to grad school and started teaching in 2011. I still did some work for smaller stations here and there, but I thought that was it for my radio career. Then in January 2015 the new owners of WHCO, who also owned WINI-AM in Murphysboro, IL, asked me back to help with sales part time, four months later they asked me to step in as GM of both stations. I missed teaching, but I couldn't pass up my dream of running a station. We flipped WINI from news/talk to oldies when we received an FM translator. Now I have the best of both worlds; I get to work in radio, but still get to work with an amazing batch of students every day.
