Started broadcasting and programming radio in '68 while in high school driven by passion for the music.
At UNR, the GM of the campus radio station begged me to come on board and gave me free reign to program popular music in the evenings where I cultivated a large student audience.
Did a short stint on the local Boss Jock AM 'til I was fired for airing a spontaneous tribute to Skynyrd on the night of the crash. That brought an offer from the new underground FM in town where I eventually became PD, directing an amazing team of talent and programmed with what became the area's legendary KOZZfm. Left to work for CBS Radio in SF for a couple of years then came back to Reno for a host of media adventures 'til the pandemic hit.
Been on the beach since and would love to get back in the water and pull an oar with a forward leaning team.
