Much has changed since I started working at WWJ more than 20 years ago.  In 1990, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram hadn’t even been thought of.  And CNN was the only all-news Cable TV News Network.  Now, of course people get their news in a number of different ways: Through tweets, social media, internet news sites, and a number of 24-hour cable news networks.

But despite those changes, I am as passionate as ever about WWJ and local radio news in general.  And we are still “All News, All The Time,” the only station in Michigan that can make that claim.  Whenever any big story breaks or there are  hazardous weather conditions, I know people rely and depend on us for accurate and up to the minute conditions.

I am especially happy and excited to be Co-Anchoring the Afternoon Drive News  with my good friend,  the brilliant and talented Jayne Bower.  And our Producer, the extraordinary Brian Larsen, who makes us sound good every day.

When I’m not at work,  I enjoy spending time at home with  my beautiful wife Brooke  and our twins, Carson and Daisy, born in 2012.   As you might imagine, that keeps us pretty busy. But I still manage to keep up with my other passion, the Detroit Tigers, and that complete waste of time called Fantasy Baseball.

Tune in Monday through Friday, from 3pm to 7pm.  If you like what you, I’d love to hear from you.  And if you don’t like something, let  us know that too!

Giving Your Child The Gift Of An Education: An MESP Stocking Stuffer

Instead of giving that sweater or a pair of socks that will probably be exchanged for something else this holiday season, you can now give the gift of education. The Michigan Education Savings Program is now offering E-Gifting, allowing grandparents, aunts, uncles, or family friends to contribute toward a child’s college education savings account, just by clicking on a link.

Future Cities Competition: Will We See Flying Cars?
