11a - 5pm Weekdays
I first started in radio at age 14 working Part Time at my hometown station in Fairfeld, Iowa. I knew then I was hooked at being "On the Air." I've worked at stations in Iowa, Illinois, Florida and Dallas, Texas! My wife Heather and I have a 3 year old son named Austin Cole. I never knew how much having a child could change your life and really make you feel like you had a purpose. There's nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my family which also includes two dogs Buddy and Boomer. I grew up listening to Country Music and am a huge Country Fan especially of artists from the 80's and 90's! When I'm not working or spending time with my family I like to play guitar. I think a lot of people in radio are actually frustrated musicians-­‐-­‐I'm one of them. I love to go to concerts and watch sports on TV. My son is turning into a NASCAR fan and loves to watch the cars go "vroom, vroom" around the track.

5pm - 11pm Weekdays
I was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but was whisked away to Peeksill, New York prior to my first birthday. Transfer’s through my father’s company, led to a few different hometowns before settling in the Dallas suburb of Garland, where I grew up. After graduating from the University of North Texas, I embarked on a professional radio career in the tiny North Texas town of Bridgeport. I currently live with my college-aged son, and is thrilled to be living near his mother, father, sisters, and brother. In my spare time, I enjoy movies and sports and TRY to maintain an active lifestyle. Musically, I enjoy New and Classic Country as well as Classic Rock

11p - 5am Weekdays
I grew up in Charlotte, NC and have lived in great cities like Cleveland, Orlando and Atlanta for jobs in radio and music promotion. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my daughter Logan and son Jack. I like watching football, racing and virtually all sports, playing golf, going to Country and Blues music shows, travel and trying new restaurants. I took a break from radio and worked for Columbia Records as the Southeast Regional Promotions manager for 10 years. During that time I worked with Mariah Carey, Aerosmith, John Mayer, Train, Destiny's Child and too many more to mention.

I grew up in West Monroe, LA…and go back as often as I can to visit family. Radio folks normally move around more than most other professionals…so I had my share of moving. I’ve lived in cities like Wheeling, WV…Pittsburgh, PA…Columbus, OH, Macon, GA…and others in between. I’ve settled for Dallas-­‐Fort Worth,, TX. My wife and I are actively involved in church…and we love music, traveling and being with friends. I’m a movie fan, so I love going to see new releases. I’ve always been in love with Country, Pop and Christian music…so, I’m always looking for new releases and discovering old favorites.
