I'm a 25-plus-year radio veteran with a passion for talk radio and democracy. I grew up in Tri-Cities and studied journalism at Whitworth University. I love sports, particularly the Green Bay Packers and NASCAR. I threw hammer and played college ball. I've been at Newstalk since 2005. Very lucky, because the wife loves football and NASCAR as well! Five great wonderful kids, ranging from 26 to 7 years old.
