Air Talent, Morning Show, Production / Imaging, Programming, Voiceover
Formats: Classic Hits
For the past 31 years, I have programmed heritage station KOMA in Oklahoma City, designing and implementing the 50s-60s Oldies format in 1988 and successfully transitioning it to the current 70s-80s Classic Hits format while maintaining top-5 ratings and listener loyalty. I have hosted mornings as a solo personality as well as with support team members.
As Program Director, I have had the privilege to work with market legends and lead our team of professionals with consistent success. I produced all of the station imaging and promos, worked with music research and daily music scheduling, conducted focus groups, and I have a strong sense of station branding and on-air execution.
As an on-air talent, I am flexible with delivery to fit the format, ranging from news to CHR. My strongest style is “friendly personality.” I enjoy upbeat, energetic on-air conversation, sometimes with differing points of view (as is often called for with multi-talent morning teams.) The bottom line is entertainment and fun for the listener. I don’t mind laughing at myself or calling out my teammates in the spirit of the show. I enjoy doing remote broadcasts, public appearances and have hosted many concerts and events.
My strongest personal assets are my people skills, problem-solving, and organizational skills, and a strong knowledge of the Oldies and Classic Hits formats. I have previously worked at Full-Service AC, Country, and CHR stations. I also have a good understanding of everything technical, having been an engineer in my early days. As a programmer, I work well with sales, engineering, and management, looking for ways to make things happen and find solutions that help us reach our goals as a company. I lead my employees with respect for their talents and form a cohesive team, all while maintaining a fun, positive work environment. We are all on the same team.
I also have years of voiceover, acting, photography, and audio-video production expertise. I enjoy it all.
