I started working at Lakeland Broadcasting the first of September 1995, when I began as the sports director, just doing morning sportscasts and play by play. Two years later started hosting the midday show on KWLM and joined the Q102 morning show as cohost spring of 2001. I began my broadcast career in Devils Lake, ND as a staff announcer in late summer 1986. From there went to Gillette, WY where I had a great time as the sports director for almost five years. Six different jobs in nine years, now in Willmar for the last 18 plus.
