I’ve spent more than twenty years working in radio, starting with my college station, WONC-FM, and moving on to stops including ESPN 1000 in Chicago, WROK-AM in Rockford, and the Rockford Lightning.
During that time I’ve held nearly every position imaginable: music jock, computer operations director, news reporter/anchor, news director, technical producer, executive producer, production director, sports director, sports reporter/anchor, play-by-play voice, web editor, program director, brand manager, and talk show host.
I’m a political junkie, a baseball and football lover, and a die-hard Chicago White Sox fan. I’m also a music devotee, owning more than 700 albums.
I currently serve as General Manager of Radio Free Hillsdale 101.7 FM, the student radio station at Hillsdale College, where I also lecture in the journalism department. I host the college’s national weekend radio show and podcast, The Radio Free Hillsdale Hour as well as the Hillsdale College Classical Education Podcast. I’m also a frequent fill-in host for The Michael Koolidge Show, heard on radio stations throughout Illinois, and for The Steve Gruber Show, heard on radio stations throughout Michigan. I co-host the Political Beats podcast for National Review.
I grew up in Darien, IL and am a proud graduate of Benet Academy in Lisle, IL and North Central College in Naperville, IL. My family and I currently reside in Hillsdale, MI.
Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn has called me “a remarkable young man.” In print! Really. You can see it here.
