on the air playing music! I moved to Idaho in 1978 and fell
in love with Boise. No need to look anywhere else, this is
where I am going to live and raise a family.
for KFXD-AM for about 5 years, doing all sorts of shifts
including Morning Drive. Then a call came in and a country
station wanted me to do their Morning Drive Show. Off I

When I am
not on the air you could find me being the arena voice for
the Boise State Broncos Men and Women’s basketball teams. I
have had the honor of being ‘the voice of the Broncos’ for
over 30 years. I also announce Boise State University
Softball games. Oh yeah, I love to play golf! If you ever
need somebody to join your group just give me a call!
