I’m a current free agent who has done Division 1 play-by-play for most of the past 18 years.
My wife and I currently reside in Manhattan, KS, after nearly two decades in Greeley, CO. I served as the “Voice of the UNC Bears” and the news and sports director for KFKA-AM until the end of August 2020, when coronavirus’ effects on the economy caught up to my employer. She continues to work for the College of Performing and Visual Arts at the University of Northern Colorado, a long-term gig she’s had for 15 years.
Yeah, we’re really at a crossroads like many in the United States right now.
Both of us grew up in northeast Kansas and our families still reside in their longtime homes. I attended a high school that’s a converted Atlas missile base before going to Kansas State University, where I majored in Broadcast Journalism while being a member of the “Pride of Wildcat Land” Marching Band.
My 18th birthday was my first day on the radio, as I worked a shift at KSDB-FM, the student-run radio station at KSU. It was the start of a career that has now cleared 30 years with more awards than I can really list, including 4 national collegiate broadcast awards.
I’ve been nominated for the Indoor Football League‘s Hall of Fame for my years with the Colorado Ice/Crush franchise, which folded in 2017. In the past 18 years, I’ve received 24 Colorado Broadcasters Association awards for news and sports coverage, adding to the piles gathered during my time in Kansas.
I’m looking forward to the next challenge. See my resume for the full details of my professional accomplishments.
