1.) 1.) When did you get involved with 88.1 FM?
The first time I was on the air was I think 1990 while working as a sports reporter. It started to snow and Dan Hamann was doing softball play-by-play from center field in a big ol’ Plymouth Fury. I jumped in and did colour commentary for that game.
I later got involved during graduate school and hosted my first show in Summer 1999. Friday Morning Part 2, right after Sandy.
2.) What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past?
